The summer 2015 issue of a Lincoln, Nebraska, magazine features a team that recently presented NFPA’s Remembering When™ program to the older adult community. Living Well magazine covers topics of importance to the older adult population, their families, and community organizations.

The article focused on an event called “Thrive” held at the new Innovation Park, where Lincoln firefighter and paramedic Phil Lewiston, and Public Education Coordinator and Aging Partners Health and Fitness Coordinator Peggy Apthorpe provided fire and fall prevention tips. Nebraska State Fire Marshal Public Information Officer Ray Nance also helped out during the presentation.

This year, NFPA is selecting teams from up to 25 communities to participate in the latest Remembering When Scholarship Conference. The Conference, which includes a training workshop, will be held November 4-6 in Orlando, Florida. Participants will receive training to reach older adults with fire and fall prevention education through group presentations and home visits. Applications must be submitted by noon on Wednesday, Agosto 12, 2015.

The team will include a fire department life safety educator and a home health visiting professional or volunteer from an agency serving older adults, such as visiting nurses, church outreach groups, civic organizations, and meal delivery programs. New for 2015, teams may opt to add a third member who fits one of the categories and strengthens the team.

Priority will be given to teams that include an American Red Cross volunteer who actively participates in the Home Fire Preparedness Campaign. Also, scholarship winners will have an option to extend their awards an extra night to attend a special interest symposium being held on November 4th at the same venue.

The Remembering When program was developed by NFPA and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to help older adults live safely at home as long as possible. Together, NFPA and the CDC created 16 key safety messages – eight fire prevention and eight fall prevention.

Each award is valued at more than $4,000 and includes airfare, lodging, and meals.
