Remembering When is a program designed by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) that uses nostalgia to promote eight fire safety and eight fall prevention messages through group presentations and home visits. The goal of the program is to help older adults eliminate fire and fall hazards in their environment so that they can stay in their homes if they would like. Through the program, we also teach what to do in the event of a fire and how to get up from the floor if you have fallen and are not hurt.
