We are proud to sponsor the TRIAD program in Radford. The goal of TRIAD is to reduce the fear of crime and victimization among seniors by increasing awareness of scams and frauds targeting them, strengthening communication between the law enforcement and senior communities, and educating seniors on local and state resources that are available in their community.
Our TRIAD group meets the 2nd Wednesday of each month at the Radford Recreation Center.
In addition, a TRIAD grant provides Guardian Alerts to citizens in needs. The Guardian Alert system enables seniors to talk directly through a pendant to a 911 emergency operator at the push of a button. The system is a set (a base station which plugs into the phone jack) and a pendant which is worn by the user.
The system can operate anywhere in and around the home, with the base station plugged into a phone jack in the central part of the home. We currently have 42 seniors who are enrolled and protected under this program.
