Older Adult Living Facilities

Our H.U.G.S. program was designed specifically for Independent Living, Assisted Living, Memory Care and Skilled Nursing facilities to provide fire and life safety training and educational support to the residents and staff of these facilities. The program helps facilities by providing training on emergency medical response, fall prevention, emergency planning, evacuation drills, proper use of 9-1-1, workplace safety, File of Life and general fire and life safety topics. The program also seeks to help provide information to facilities on how to meet Colorado Standards.
