The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) is committed to helping communities reduce injuries and deaths related to fire and falls among older adults through the Remembering When Program. NFPA will select teams from up to 22 communities to attend the 2016 NC Remembering When Conference. Participants will receive training to reach older adults through group presentations and home visits. This conference is in partnership with State Farm Insurance, NC Baptist Aging Ministry, NC State Fireman’s Association, American Red Cross, and the NC Department of Insurance-OSFM.

Each Remembering When Award is valued at more than $500 and includes:

  •  Lodging at the Great Wolf Lodge on September 13th, 2016.
