Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- The Las Vegas Fire Department said one of its top priorities is to protect seniors during a fire.
That's why they met on Tuesday with residents at Decatur Pines Senior Apartments.
They recently had a scare when a small fire set-off the sprinklers, and many weren't sure what to do.
According to the fire department, the biggest issue for the elderly is their mobility during an emergency.
Since last October, one senior a month has been killed or seriously injured in a smoking-related fire.
