Senior Home Inspection Program (SHIP)
SHIP is a voluntary service that provides a free home safety inspection to identify features in your home that may make your residence susceptible to burglaries, fires, or injuries due to falls. Qualified law enforcement officers, firefighters, aging service professionals, and occupational therapy student interns will collaborate to conduct the safety inspections, and provide information and free items for you to consider that may reduce household hazards, decrease your risk, and help you be safe in your home.
Persons eligible must be age 60 or over and reside in either Ross or Scioto County. There is no income eligibility. To schedule your free home safety assessment, or to get additional information about the SHIP program, simply call the number below:
