Age Friendly Home Adaptation Grant Program

Home Adaptation
Illustrations from the Age Friendly Home Adaptation Planning Guide
Every eleven seconds, an older adult is treated in an emergency room in the United States because of a fall. More than 50% of these falls happen in the home. In Sausalito, falls at home are the number one reason emergency medical services are called.

To help Sausalito residents age 60 or older make their home a safer place, the City's Community Development Department has teamed up with Age Friendly Sausalito to create the Age Friendly Home Adaptation Grant Program. This new program offers reduced-fee or no-cost building permits for home modifications like entry ramps and handrails. Without the grant program, the building permit fee for a new entry ramp could be as high as $350. Younger adults with a disability are also eligible for the program.

To participate in the program, a Sausalito homeowner or renter (with landlord approval) fills out an application form that is available online or from the Community Development Department counter at City Hall. The form requires proof of age or standard proof of disability to determine eligibility. 

A full list of modifications eligible for a reduced-fee or no-cost building permit is available from the Community Development Department counter in City Hall. Examples of eligible modifications include:
  • Stair elevator lifts
  • Ramps to entries
  • Handrails
  • Wider doors
  • No-curb showers
  • Adjustable-height bathroom counters
  • Bracing for grab bars at tubs, showers, and toilets
For residents interested in learning more about the new grant program, a workshop will be held in the Council Chambers at Sausalito City Hall from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 14. Speakers include Age-Friendly Architect Michael Sheats, Age Friendly Sausalito Chair Sybil Boutilier, and Sausalito Building Inspector Kenneth Henry.

Copies of a new Age Friendly Home Adaptation Planning Guide are available at the Community Development counter in City Hall. Any questions about the Age Friendly Home Adaptation Grant Program may be directed to Permit Technician McKenna Ramiro at (415) 289-4128.

Test Your Smoke Alarms When You Turn the Clocks on March 11

Smoke Alarm
Testing a battery-powered smoke alarm
Daylight saving time for 2018 begins at 2:00 a.m. on Sunday, March 11. The Southern Marin Fire Protection District recommends that you always remember to "turn and test," i.e. test your smoke alarms at the same time that you turn your clocks. This will ensure that you check your smoke alarms at least twice per year, when we go on and off daylight saving time.

A smoke alarm is an inexpensive way to protect your family from smoke and fire injuries, but you must take the time to test it to ensure that it is working properly. A properly functioning smoke alarm doubles your chance of surviving a fire by warning you of a dangerous situation before it is too late.

For minimum coverage, have at least one smoke alarm on every level of your home, hallways outside every bedroom, and in every sleeping area. You can also add alarms to the top and bottom of all stairways and often-forgotten places such as basements, attics, utility rooms, and garages. We encourage you to have several smoke alarms throughout your home.

There are two types of powered smoke alarms:
  • Battery-powered: These inexpensive units can easily be installed anywhere. They now come with a tamper-resistant 10-year battery that leaves you worry-free.
  • AC-powered: Installed by an electrician (or those with a good working knowledge of electricity), these units are more dependable in the long term due to their direct-wired power source. But they should still have an independent battery backup, so that they will continue to operate during a power outage.
Some newer models have a hush-button feature that silences a false alarm and desensitizes the unit for a few minutes until the air clears. Other high-end models have safety lights that come on when the alarm is activated.

Almost all smoke alarms have a test button that, when pushed, causes the alarm to sound. Most alarms also have either a blinking or a solid light that glows to let you know that the alarm is getting power. Please note that smoke alarms should be replaced after ten years. If you purchased your smoke alarms on or before March 2008, it is a good idea to replace them to make sure they are in working condition.

Police Use Mapping Software to Track Boats in Sausalito Waters

Sausalito Waters
A map showing the location of boats in Sausalito waters as of February 3, 2018
In July 2017, the Sausalito Police Department began using a Geographic Information System (GIS) called ArcGIS to track boats anchored or moored in Sausalito waters. Since that time, a total of nine surveys have been conducted by the department's new marine survey team, which consists of two part-time employees. As of February 3, 2018, there were 64 boats in Sausalito waters. That number represents a decline from a high of 77 boats in the fall of 2017, according to data cited by Lt. Bill Fraass at a presentation to the City Council on February 27. The number does not include boats on the far side of the channel into the bay; those waters are administered by the Richardson's Bay Regional Association.

ArcGIS also allows the Sausalito Police to track vessels by name, movement, condition, registration, owner information, and contacts with law enforcement. As of February 3, 55% of the vessels anchored or moored in Sausalito waters were currently registered or federally documented.

The Waterfront Management Plan approved by the Sausalito City Council in June 2017 sets as its highest priorities the removal of marine debris vessels, the removal of unoccupied vessels used as storage, and the enforcement of vessel registration requirements. The plan also charges the Sausalito Police with monitoring vessels occupied by unskilled or mentally unstable people who may be a danger to themselves or others, with the goal of getting these individuals off the water.

Since November 14, 2017, seven vessels have been removed from Sausalito waters as marine debris. In addition, the Sausalito Police have issued citations for infractions such as expired registration, debris on deck, and unlawful mooring in the waters of Dunphy Park.

The Sausalito Police Department is actively seeking to hire a part-time marine patrol officer to bolster enforcement efforts on the waterfront. The marine patrol officer position and the marine survey team are funded by the Tidelands Fund, which generates revenues from City waterfront properties like the Sausalito Yacht Club and the Spinnaker Restaurant, and the City's savings from its withdrawal from the Richardson's Bay Regional Association on July 1, 2017.

Reduce Damage from Identity Theft and Other Scams

In 2015, 13.1 million U.S. citizens were victims of fraud. In 2016, the number increased to 15.4 million, and 2017 saw a record high of 16.7 billion victims. Compromised social security numbers were involved in 35% of the cases in 2017. 

If you believe have been the victim of a fraud such as a scam or identity theft, or if you believe your financial data has been compromised, here are a few of the steps you can take to mitigate the damage:
  • Contact your tax preparer (if you have one), your financial institutions, and any agency with whom you have a financial relationship to file a fraud alert and request additional security measures, such as a PIN or security questions.
  • Place an initial ninety-day "fraud alert" on your credit files with the major credit bureaus. Fraud alerts are available at no charge and tell creditors to contact you before they open any new accounts. To place a fraud alert, call any one of the major credit bureaus at the numbers listed below. As soon as one credit bureau confirms your fraud alert, they will notify the others:
    • TransUnion: 1-800-680-7289
    • Experian: 1-888-397-3742
    • Equifax: 1-866-349-5191
  • Consider requesting that a "security freeze" be placed on your credit file. A security freeze prohibits, with certain exceptions, the major credit bureaus from releasing your credit report or any information from it without your express authorization. 
  • Obtain a free credit report from www.annualcreditreport.com. You can order a free report from each of the three credit reporting agencies once a year. It is recommended that you make your requests in January, May, and September to stagger your credit report monitoring throughout the year.
As always, use extreme caution when giving out your social security number, credit card numbers, or any other financial data. Never give money, your financial information, or access to your computer or mobile device to a stranger. Scammers will pretend to be people you love, an authority figure, someone in need, or someone with a deal that's too good to be true. If a request comes by way of email, pick up the phone and call the person who is supposedly making the request. If you get a call or email that claims to be from your bank, contact the bank directly by phone using a number that you know is legitimate. Never send financial data via email.

Lastly, don't believe anyone who calls and says you'll be arrested unless you pay taxes or debt, even if they have part or all of your Social Security number or they say they're from the IRS. If this happens, please contact the Sausalito Police Department at (415) 289-4170.

Police. In an ongoing effort to make the community aware of crimes of fraud, the Sausalito Police Department would like to advise the public of a new telephone fraud scheme. The scheme involves a phone call where the caller ID appears to originate from your own phone. When you answer the call, a recording says it is the phone company and that there is a problem with your phone service. The recording asks you to enter the last four digits of your Social Security number to confirm your identity. The Sausalito Police advise you to never enter any personal or identifying information into your phone when you receive a call. If you receive one of these calls, simply hang up. Please contact your phone service provider directly on their normal business phone number if you wish to check the status of your account.

Administration. Call a Ride for Sausalito Seniors (CARSS) was founded in 2015 as a result of the hard work of the City's Age Friendly Task Force. After surveying the community, the task force developed a plan prioritizing the needs of aging residents, and local transportation was at the top of the list. In 2017, CARSS and its team of volunteer drivers provided more than 1,500 rides to residents of Sausalito and the floating homes who are age 60 and older.

Unfortunately, CARSS is running low on volunteer drivers. If you have been thinking about volunteering in Sausalito, this is a great time to start. CARSS requests that volunteers drive a minimum of one four-hour shift per month, or one there-and-back ride to an evening program at the Sausalito Library or another local venue. To start the application process to become a CARSS driver, please call (415) 944-5474 or download an application
