Impact of Medications on Fall and Fire Risk in Older Adults


FireTox recently completed a study assessing the relationship between medication use and fall & fire risk in the older adult population. The project was funded by the Fire Protection Research Foundation in conjunction with the Department of Homeland Security. The full report can be accessed on the NFPA website by clicking here. FireTox is pleased to know that this work will provide additional content for community risk reduction programs such as NFPA's Remembering When program. The work will be presented at the 2022 NFPA Annual Conference in Boston, MA, June 6-9th. Registration is open now, and we hope to see you there!
