The application period opens June 12th for the 2017 Remembering When™ Scholarship Conference. Scheduled for November 1-3, the conference will be held at the Sheraton Nashville Downtown Hotel.

NFPA will select teams from up to 25 communities. Participants will receive free training on group presentations and home visits to help older adults live safely at home. Teams comprising a fire and life safety educator, a community partner who works with older adults, and one optional additional team member will leave the conference ready to implement Remembering When, the NFPA fire and falls prevention program.

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, and enthusiastic about strengthening partnerships to support older adults.

Each Remembering When scholarship is valued at more than $4,000 and includes transportation, lodging, food, and ongoing support for program implementation.

The application period closes Friday, August 11th.
