Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness Month

by | May 30, 2022

Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness Month is a time to come together and show our support for the more than 55 million people worldwide living with Alzheimer’s or another dementia. First Response Safety Training is proud to partner with the Alzheimer’s Association in raising awareness during this important month. The Alzheimer’s Association provides important resources and support for those affected by Alzheimer’s, and we are honored to help spread their message. One way we are going purple is providing our staff with purple team shirts to wear during class this month. Together, we can make a difference in the fight against Alzheimer’s. Join us in going purple this June and take action to raise awareness about this disease.

The Alzheimer’s Association is the leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer’s care, support, and research. Their mission is to eliminate Alzheimer’s disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected, and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.
