NFPA offers free, updated fire and fall prevention program for
older adults

Remembering WhenRemembering WhenTM: A Fire and Fall Prevention Program for Older Adults, was developed by NFPA and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to help older adults live safely at home for as long as possible. 

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. Coalition members can decide how to best approach the local senior population: through group presentations, during home visits, and/or as part of a smoke alarm installation and fall intervention program. 

This refreshed version of the Remembering When program targets a range of older adults and is meant to be appealing to active seniors. Updates to the program include clear messages, new photography, and current statistics. Additionally, the trivia questions have been revised to match the targeted age groups.
