Spotlight on Public Education (SOPE) Virtual Event
October 27, 2020 | 11 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. ET
Join us for the FREE Spotlight on Public Education (SOPE) virtual event. SOPE is an exciting way to increase your understanding of teaching the public about fire and life safety.
Fire and life safety education are vital to every community and dealing with diverse groups of people in multiple settings with varying circumstances presents significant challenges. SOPE brings public educators, injury prevention professionals, and others responsible for risk reduction together to share knowledge and ideas and strengthen your ability to help protect your community.
This unique professional development opportunity from NFPA features:
Education Sessions – Attend four expert-developed programs covering topics such as older adults and fall prevention, hoarding, community risk reduction (CRR) and community risk assessment (CRA) and integrating technology into fire safety programs.
Resource Center – Discover downloadable assets for helping you perform your job, ranging from CRR and wildfire resources to Fire Prevention Week™ promotions and materials available on Sparky.org and SparkySchoolHouse.org.
Networking Lounge Rooms – Expand your professional connections by visiting these lounge rooms on a variety of fire and life safety topics. Limited space available.
