Here at NFPA, we’ve got a calendar with big red circles around the date of August 15, 2016. That’s
the last day we’ll be accepting applications for the Remembering When Scholarship Conference.

NFPA is selecting teams to participate in the expenses-paid Conference, which will take place in San Antonio,

Texas, November 14-16. Those who are interested in building local fire and fall prevention programs for older

adults are encouraged to get their teams organized. Participants will receive training to reach older adults through

group presentations and home visits. NFPA is looking to train 2- or 3-person teams who are:

  • excited to help older adults reduce injuries from fires
         and falls.
  • committed to building a community outreach program.
  • enthusiastic about strengthening partnerships to
         support older adults.

Each Remembering When scholarship is valued at more than $4,000 and includes in addition to the training workshop for each team:

  • airfare to and from San Antonio & shuttle
         transportation to and from the hotel.
  • lodging at the Drury Plaza Hotel San Antonio Riverwalk
         on November 14 and 15, 2016.
  • a networking reception on the evening of November 14,
  • breakfast, lunch, and snacks throughout the training.
  • ongoing support from NFPA for program implementation.

The application period will close at noon on Monday, August 15, 2016. Teams should submit one complete application packet. Application packets will be reviewed as they are received.
