Residents of the Eastwood Community can feel a little safer in their homes. Peace Inc. has obtained grant money through the Gifford Foundation and Health Foundation of Central & Western New York which allows them to do free home safety checks. The safety inspections include adding small items and minor home repairs that could prevent at-home injuries. Common preventative measures include installing hand rails, taping down loose rugs, and more. Inspectors will also leave a safety kit that includes flashlights, wind-up radios and legal tips.
If you are an Eastwood Community resident, and need more info on the free home safety checks call: (315) 437-4011 or peace-caa.org
