Very nice. I will definitely be checking this, maybe it is something grandpa and me can do together.

Older people are very eager to learn about safety and Remembering When is just the program to jog there memory Oh how refreshing it is to journey back down memory lane and learn fire and fall safety at the same time.With this program the props help to get the seniors to interact with the presenter and to round it off the trivia game is perfect to help them to remember what they have just learned so hats off to the NFPA for caring so much for the back bone of our society (OUR SENIORS)

These are some great ideas. When you have a month that focuses on a specific group, many other organizations that deal with that group already have many activities and events lined up in the community. The fire service can call these organizations and become part of the celebrations and educational opportunities. Everyone loves fire department involvement.

The trivia game with the Remember When program is really popular with older adults and they learn or review important safety behaviours. This could be a really appropriate time to reach out to older adults who are at a much higher risk to fire than any other group. You are never too old to play!
