Life and Safety

According to the National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA), more than 500,000 United States homes burn down each year. Many fires are due to unsafe or improper wiring or other preventable electrical hazards. The unfortunate truth is this: Many home fires could have been averted. Smoke alarms are extremely effective at preventing fire-related death and injury. The chances of dying in a residential fire can be cut in half when a smoke alarm is present.

In the United States, a home fire claims a life every three hours. Every half-hour, someone is injured in a home fire. Residential fires cost nearly $7 billion in property damage. A fire can destroy a home and everything in it in a matter of minutes. Recovering from a fire can be physically and mentally draining. The loss of personal belongings and keepsakes can be traumatic. The loss of a home to fire can be particularly difficult for the elderly, who may have lived in a home for decades, or for young children, who have lost the safe familiarity of toys, clothes, and rooms and may be confused by the distraught adults around them.
