Chesterfield TRIAD

The Chesterfield TRIAD gives seniors a voice when it comes to their personal safety and security and offers them an opportunity to socialize while learning ways to be safe and secure.


Seniors qualified for this program receive daily phone calls from sheriff’s office personnel for updates on daily events, health and needs as well as weekly deputy visits.

File of Life / Yellow Dot

The File of Life information card is held inside a magnetic red vinyl sleeve marked File of Life, which the user posts on the refrigerator. The Yellow Dot is a similar safety program designed to save you valuable time in the event of an automobile related incident.
