Williamson County Public Library
Join us in the library meeting room for a Remembering When™ fire and fall prevention presentation for older adults!
The purpose of the presentation is to identify fire and fall hazards that affect older adults. The program provides easy solutions for older adults to implement in their daily lives to reduce the risk of fire and falls. Remembering WhenTM: A Fire and Fall Prevention Program for Older Adults, was developed by National Fire Prevention Association (NFPA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to help older adults live safely at home for as long as possible.
It is centered around 16 key safety messages – eight fire prevention and eight fall prevention – developed by experts from national and local safety organizations as well as through focus group testing in high-fire-risk states. The presenters will use trivia, humor, and nostalgia to teach safety from fires and falls. The focus is on fun, but the messages are serious.
