SENIOR SAFETY (TRIAD)

The TRIAD Unit travels to over 30 local senior facilities and community events each year to teach seniors how to avoid scams, fraud, and identity theft. The TRIAD team presentation covers topics such as combatting telemarketing and credit card scams, mail fraud, home safety, auto theft prevention, 9-1-1 protocols and violence against seniors. There are also helpful safety magnets and booklets for seniors to read as reminders of what do to stay safe.

If you would like someone from the TRIAD Unit to speak to your senior group, please fill out the online community request form or call 610-278-5955.
