Seniors safety seminar offered

Nanaimo RCMP and the Good Samaritan Society will host a seniors safety presentation Today (May 15).

All seniors are invited to the presentation being held at the Wexford Creek seniors housing facility, 80 Tenth Street, 1:30-3 p.m.

Topics discussed include scams, fraud prevention, safety at home and in the community, and scooter safety.

“Many seniors lead active, vibrant lives, which take them out into our community and beyond," said Const. Gary O'Brien, Nanaimo RCMP spokesman. "The Nanaimo RCMP recognize this and are committed to ensuring their safety by providing current crime prevention tips and safety awareness information.”

As seating is limited, registration is encouraged. To register, please contact Rhondda Sellers of Wexford Creek at 250-713-1696.
