SALT SENIOR RESIDENTIAL SECURITY KIT
The SALT Residential Security & Safety program has been expanded with a new pilot project to provide important residential security hardware to St. Tammany parish Seniors. The kit includes a flashing porch light bulb that assists responders in quickly identifying a call for service and a highly reflective full size address sign mounted on metal post.
The through- the-door viewer that allows residents to see who is outside the door before opening it is no longer available. We are searching for a replacement item.
The cost of the kit is $20.00. For Seniors who qualify for assistance under Federal Guidelines, there is no charge. Those who can afford to pay in full for the components will be asked to do so. Those in between will pay what they can afford. There will be no significant financial qualification process, only an expression from the Senior of qualifying under federal poverty guidelines. Each component will be priced separately so those who don’t require the complete kit can still get the necessary elements they lack. The complete kit is available now. Call the SALT Council Event & Program Message Center at 985-809-5455 to make arrangements to receive a kit .

The St. Tammany SALT Council makes no profit on any of these items. They have been purchased from the Operating Fund of the Council because they are believed to be valuable in improving residential security. We ask you to pay what you can to offset the costs for the program so we can extend it to others who may not be able to pay for the kits.
