NN Monthly Insights: News You Can Use

Emily Weir | Published on 5/1/2022

NN Monthly Insights
The Hampshire County Sheriff’s Department Discusses
Its Free Medical Equipment and Triad Programs 

This month’s “news you can use” will focus on local resources for older people managed through the Hampshire County Sheriff’s Department. Deputy Dave Fenton will provide an overview of two programs that he oversees. 

The first is the Medical Equipment Giveaway Program. Dave will discuss the kinds of free durable medical equipment available to older people, and how to access them. 

Next, he will describe the Triad Program, which provides resources that increase the safety of older citizens. Examples include prominent house numbering (which helps emergency personnel quickly find a residence), document shredding, drug take-backs, safe-entry lock boxes, and driveway sand (to prevent falls on ice). 

Please join us to learn about these amazing local resources.
