Facts about Fire
- 2/3 of all fire deaths are in homes with no working smoke alarm. A working alarm cuts your chance of dying in a fire in half.
- Cooking fires often start from overheated grease and unattended cooking. Stay alert!
- More people die of smoke inhalation than flames. Fire can suck the oxygen from the room and replace it with poisonous smoke and gases. Get out early and have a plan!
Candle with Care
- December is the peak time of year for candle fires. Get the same holiday glow with realistic battery-operated look-alikes.
- Roughly one-third of candle fires start in the bedroom.
- More than half of candle fires start with objects too close to the flame. Watch the drapes and clothing!
How to prepare for a fire:
- Ensure that your fire sprinklers and/or smoke detectors are working - install smoke detector batteries twice a year.
- Make a copy of important documents and photos and store them at a friend's house.
- Create an escape plan to evacuate your home in case of a fire or other emergency.
