Jerry Huettl, Mankato public safety director, said seniors are a growing part of the area's population that tends to be vulnerable. They are more prone to being victimized because they are often alone and tend to trust people more than younger generations.

"This event is very consistent with one of our primary missions, which is prevention," he said. "Typically, police departments aren't known for this type of activity. Usually, they're involved in arrests and cleaning up after an accident. We applaud them for recognizing the need for Air Max 2016 University Red prevention."

Police Commander Amy Vokal, who worked with Commander Sandi Schnorenberg to create the camp, said everything developed from the interests of seniors, themselves. Police regularly get questions from seniors about home protection, door to door sales frauds and identity theft.

The Senior Citizen Safety Camp will also give the department an opportunity to find out if there is any interest in creating a new Triad program in the region, he added. Triad programs started surfacing in the late 1980s as a partnership between police departments, sheriff's departments and senior citizens.

A Triad organization has existed in the region in the past. Recently, the Mankato Public Safety Department, North Mankato Police Department, Blue Earth County Sheriff's Department and Nicollet County Sheriff's Department started discussing the possibility of bringing it back, Huettl said.

Staying safe at home was seen with a new perspective by Ivadell Hunter when she lost her husband earlier this year.

On Sept. 13, she and other seniors will have a chance to learn more about staying safe inside and outside their homes during Mankato's first Senior Citizen Safety Camp. It will take place during two sessions, one in the morning and one in the afternoon, at the Midwest Wireless Civic Center.

The presentation has been used many times since it was created, and the safety fair seemed like a perfect place to do it again, said Kevin Burns, ISJ director of communications.

"What we found is our contacts with seniors tend to be the same issues and concerns," Vokal said. "So we thought, why not put it all together in one event. Then it expanded into so many different directions. People are thinking this is a great opportunity to get the word out."

common fraud, first aid and the difference between advance directives and do not resuscitate orders. There will also be a variety of informational booths, much like the civic center's annual home show, with packets of information and promotional items.

After finding out Blue Earth County had more home injuries due to falls than any other county in the state, Immanuel St. Joseph's created a home safety presentation. It includes information about using grip strips to keep from slipping in the tub or shower, installing bathroom hand rails and using hallway night lights to keep from tripping in the dark.
