Fire and Fall Prevention Information for Older Adults

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) has created a program called “Remembering When™” to help education older adults and caregivers of older adults in fire and fall prevenation.  According to the NFPA, “At age 65, older adults are twice as likely to be killed or injured by fires compared to the population at large. By age 75, that risk increases to three times that of the general population — and to four times by age 85.”

The Remembering When™ program was developed by experts from national and local safety organizations as well as through focus group testing in high-fire-risk states.  We have included links to various information from the NFPA website to help you stay safe!
