The NFPA 2014 Remembering When™: A Fire and Fall Prevention Program for Older Adults conference will be held June 4-6 in Las Vegas, right before NFPA's annual Conference & Expo. NFPA will award scholarships to teams from up to 25 communities to attend. These teams of two will be made up of representatives of fire departments and home visit agencies across the U.S. and Canada and will discuss best practices regarding outreach to older adults through group presentations and home visits.
Each year, NFPA awards scholarships to establish partnerships between fire departments and home visit agencies for the implementation of Remembering When at the local level. To be considered for a scholarship award to attend this conference, submit an application no later than March 10. Teams who are awarded the scholarship will receive air travel, lodging at the Luxor, meals during the conference, and training all free of charge. The program now includes updated statistics and trivia questions, a modern look to appeal to younger, active seniors, and is also available as a free download.
