CarFit, a safety service for seniors, will be offered at the Fond du Lac Senior Center this summer one time each month. Appointments are available between 10 a.m. and noon on Tuesday, June 25; Wednesday, July 17; and Thursday, August 8. Seniors will receive a free lunch for participating.

This is a national program designed to give a quick (15 minutes) comprehensive check on how well a mature driver and their vehicle work together. Trained volunteers will review a CarFit check list and given recommendations for a better "fit" for the driver, which will provide the driver with greater comfort and better vehicle control.

A 15-minute appointment is needed and can be made by calling Fond du Lac Senior Center 322-3630. Participants will drive their car to the Senior Center, 151 E. First St., to the back parking lot on Gillett Street. The driver remains in their car while the volunteers take the driver through an observation and questionnaire session. A free tire inspection will be performed by Matthews Tire.

Upon completion of the CarFit check, participants will receive a coupon for a free Senior Dining Program lunch certificate and a goodie bag, sponsored by the SALT (Seniors and Law Enforcement Together) organization. They can also stop inside the Senior Center to pick up brochures and information regarding driver safety at a TRIAD/SALT info table.

Fond du Lac County TRIAD/SALT is an organization that works together to reduce criminal victimization and enhance the quality for seniors throughout of FDL County. Meeting are held on the third Tuesday of each month at the City-County Building are open to the public.
