Now the celebration for older adults begins.National Senior Center Month is celebrated every September. It’s a time when senior centers shine the spotlight on career fairs, financial and health fitness workshops, expos, and lifelong learning classes they offer. Centers expect higher attendance than usual from older adults, which provides a great opportunity to reach a sizable number of people with NFPA’s Remembering When program.


Remembering When, centered around 16 key safety messages – eight fire prevention and eight fall prevention, was designed to be implemented by a coalition comprising the local fire department, service clubs, social and religious organizations, retirement communities, and others.


 

You can download the program and supporting materials free from the NFPA website or, for a nominal fee, we’ll print out all 106 pages in full color and ship them to you. Either way, you’ll play an important role in making National Senior Center Month, and fire and fall prevention, memorable.
