The Remembering When program just got better! Support materials for the fire and fall prevention program for older adults are now available in Spanish and Mandarin. You can download prevention message cards, safety tip sheets, home safety checklists, and prevention flyers for free.


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 as well as through focus group testing in high-fire-risk states.


The program was designed to be implemented by a coalition comprising the local fire department, service clubs, social and religious organizations, retirement communities, and others.
