Seniors Programs

Barrie Fire and Emergency Service teaches people of all ages how to make responsible choices regarding health and safety. One of our most important commitments is to give people the knowledge and skills they need to lead safer lives.

Remembering When

Remembering When™ was developed by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to help older adults live safely at home for as long as possible. If you would like to have a Remembering When presentation to your group, please email fire.prevention@barrie.ca 

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 targets a range of older adults and is meant to be appealing to active seniors. Related document: Remembering When Program Safety Checklist
