Apply now -- deadline is August 10

Remembering WhenNFPA is committed to helping communities reduce fire and fall injuries and deaths among older adults. Since 1999, communities throughout North America have implemented the Remembering When program, reaching thousands of older adults.

We'll be hosting a Remembering When: A Fire and Fall Prevention Program for Older Adults conference, December 2-4, 2012, at the Boston Longwharf Hotel in Boston, MA. We're looking for representatives from up to 35 communities to attend the event, which will emphasize reaching older adults through home visits, to ensure that the program reaches the most vulnerable of older adults.

We are asking fire departments to partner with an agency whose main outreach to older adults is through home visits.

If you'd like to apply to attend this important event, please visit our website to learn more and download an application form. The deadline for submissions is August 10, 2012.
