seniors and look forward to our daily conversations.
The Pittsfield Fire and
Rescue Service would like to remind our senior residents

program to check on your well-being. If you are a senior or
disabled resident who would like to be contacted daily to
check in, please give us a call to make arrangements. We
will talk about what works best for you – you may chose to
call us daily at a particular time of day or you may prefer
that we contact you. Either way, if we do not hear from
you, we will check on your welfare and see how you are. If
you choose, you may provide us with the name and phone
number of a family member or friend to be contacted on your
behalf if needed.
