Local Medical Reserve Corps members have been visiting Senior Citizen Centers, teaching about fall prevention. Falls are not just the result of getting older. Many falls can be prevented. By making changes, chances of falling are lowered. Four things are suggested to prevent falls. 1. Begin a regular exercise program. 2. Make your home safer. 3. Have your health care provider review your medicines. 4. Have your vision checked. Unintentional home injury is the fifth leading cause of death, and 2.5 times more likely to cause injury than car crashes.

The Southeastern Medical Reserve Corps is happy to have two new volunteers, Jason and Korene Merrell of Cleveland.

Anyone interested in donating their time and expertise to prepare and respond to emergencies contact Camille Huntsman at 435-653-2120.
