Monday, March 10, 2014, is the last day to apply for the Remembering When Conference to be held this year in Las Vegas June 4-6, prior to the NFPA Conference & Expo June 9-12. NFPA will select teams from up to 25 communities to receive training on reaching older adults through group presentations and home visits. Remembering When is centered around 16 key safety messages–eight fire prevention and eight fall prevention–developed by experts from national and local safety organizations and through focus group testing in high-fire-risk states.
Each team must include one member of the fire department and one member of an agency serving older adults in the community. Each award is valued at more than $4,000 and includes the training workshop, airfare, lodging, and educational materials for distribution to older adults. This is an opportunity not to be missed! If your team is selected, you will be notified on or before Monday, March 31.
