FIRE PREVENTION INFORMATION

Fire Safety and prevention are important for families to understand and practice. Most fire deaths occur in the home and many could have been prevented. As smoke detectors and other fire prevention measures have become more common in recent years, the deaths and injuries from fire have decreased significantly.

To understand the importance of fire prevention one must become aware of the basic characteristics of fire. Fire spreads quickly and you have no time to grab valuables or make a telephone call. In as little as two minutes, the conditions within a room on fire can become untenable and life threatening. In addition to heat, fires also produce toxic gases, which can make you disoriented.
