ship program

The Senior Home Inspection Program is a FREE home safety service offered to all Ross County seniors, ages 60 years and over regardless of income.

S.H.I.P. is a voluntary service that provides a free home safety inspection to identify features in your home which might make your residence susceptible to burglaries, fires, or injuries due to falls. Qualified law enforcement officers, firefighters, retired or experienced service professionals and occupational therapy student interns will collaborate to conduct the inspections. They will then advise you of the steps you can take to remove or reduce hazards which put you at risk. In some cases S.H.I.P. volunteers will install safety devices, which at no cost to the participant that will help the senior be safer in their home.
