The Saskatchewan government has announced a new program to help seniors secure their homes against break-ins, fires and carbon monoxide leaks.
The Seniors Home Security Program offers a home safety assessment and installation of equipment such as dead bolts, door viewers and smoke and carbon monoxide alarms free of charge.
Government Relations Minister Jim Reiter announced the new program Tuesday at the Seniors First Safety open house, hosted by the Regina Senior Citizens Centre.
To be eligible for the program, seniors must be 65 or older and either have a household income of $35,000 or less, or have been the victim of a break and enter or home invasion.
