Senior citizens attend Holiday Awareness and Safety Bazaar

LAWTON, Okla._Senior citizens in the area got the chance to learn how to stay safe and prepare for winter weather this holiday season.

The Center for Creative Living had more than two dozen people attend the second annual Holiday Awareness and Safety Bazaar Friday. The Red Cross, Lawton Fire Department and Emergency Management spoke to seniors about preparedness and wellness.

Weather can also affect your body’s health and our own SkyWARN 7 meteorologist Katie Western spoke to the group and answered weather-related questions.

Lorene Miller, the Center for Creative Living’s executive director, says many seniors are at a higher risk for falls and other injuries.

“During the winter weather season, so many seniors are at risk for falls or at risk for being injured or at risk for not having enough food, not being able to get their medicines, not being able to be out and be mobile. So, this just adds information for them and it’s just another resource for them to have the information they need to be safe during the season,” Miller said.

Seniors received advice on how to keep their pets safe this winter and had the chance to mix and mingle with each other.

Attendees were also treated to free winterization checks on their vehicles and 20 volunteers from MacArthur Middle and High School helped serve lunch.
