Older & Wiser 

To reach and distribute fire safety information and educate seniors on dangerous risk behaviours the Brantford Fire Department uses the Ontario Fire Marshal’s Public Fire Safety Council’s program called "Older and Wiser." We visit seniors’ centres, seniors’ groups and seniors’ apartment buildings to do a fire safety and prevention presentation. We are also participants in the yearly Seniors’ Safety Showcase which enables us to reach not only seniors, but their caregivers as well, with valuable fire safety information.
