Prevention for Seniors

Remembering When™ 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 program was designed to be implemented by a coalition comprising the local fire department, service clubs, social and religious organizations, retirement communities, and others. Durham Fire Department has partnered with Duke Trauma Injury Prevention Specialist to provide the training.  We provide training through group presentations and during home visits which include smoke alarm installation and fall intervention training.
