Join NFPA Regional Education Specialist Meredith Hawes (pictured at right) and fire and life safety experts for a discussion on the 2017 Fire Prevention Week theme and how it applies to people who are deaf or hard of hearing. Meredith will be joined by Communications and Marketing Coordinator for Virginia Hands & Voices Valerie Abbott, and J.D. Jenkins, NFPA Public Education Committee Virginia representative.

Family members who are deaf or hard-of-hearing may face unique challenges in an emergency, putting them at even greater risk during a home fire. And in a fire, seconds count. Seconds can mean the difference between escaping safely and lives ending in tragedy.

The webinar will be held twice on November 8th and also on November 9th.
