By Lisa Braxton

If you’re interested in applying for the Remembering When™ Scholarship Conference, you only have two more days to do so. Applications must be submitted by Wednesday, August 12, 2015.

This year NFPA is selecting teams from up to 25 communities to participate. 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.

The teams 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.
