Home Safe Home, Lockboxes and Smoke Alarms
Home Safe Home volunteers visit seniors in their homes and help residents identify their tripping and falling hazards. The volunteers will also review fire escape plans and check smoke alarms. When appropriate, they refer residents to agencies for additional assistance.
We also assist older adults and individuals with special needs to install lockboxes. There is a regular delivery day, but we also have special deliveries and removals throughout the month.
Volunteers make deliveries to fire stations, city buildings and other locations. Individuals may be required to lift heavy items when making deliveries.
Community Event Volunteers
Volunteers staff a booth at community events, distribute Fire Department materials and answer community questions about the Scottsdale Fire Department and fire safety. Individuals may be required to lift heavy items when setting up and tearing down booths.
If you love public speaking or one-on-one teaching, this may be for you. Volunteers:
- Teach people how to save a life with Hands-Only CPR.
- Lead lessons in fire, transportation and water safety to preschoolers through 3rd grade.
- Assist with school field days that teach children fire safety with hands-on activities.
- Work with teens to address safe driving practices, emergency response and public safety.
