What We Do

History

The model for Step Smart Collier (SSC) is the Lee County Injury Prevention Coalition. North Naples Fire/Rescue initiated SSC early in 2013 under the direction of Assistant Fire Chief Jorge Aguilera. In July 2014 retired Naples Chamber President, Mike Reagen became the Chair to advance the SSC mission. In July 2015, Keith Dameron assumed leadership of SSC with an aggressive strategy to expand the reach and capabilities of Step Smart Collier. Today, SSC is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization that advocates for fall prevention and is dedicated to presenting fall prevention information to Collier County seniors.
