Fires have always posed a serious risk and continue to represent a very real danger in the United States. Fire departments respond to a fire every 25 seconds and fire is a real risk that disproportionately impacts vulnerable populations such as the elderly and children. This is why the National Fire Protection Association’s Fire Prevention Week – which has been going on for more than 90 years – is so important.
More attention needs to be drawn to fire safety and to the overall aim of reducing the rate of deadly fires in this country. Fire Prevention Week kicks off a weeklong campaign to raise that awareness, and the American Chemistry Council’s North American Flame Retardant Alliance (NAFRA) commends NFPA’s long-standing efforts.
Families should implement various fire safety measures from smoke alarms to purchasing home products containing flame retardants that have been proven to help stop or slow the spread of fire. In situations of fire, seconds matter and every measure helps. Here are five general fire safety tips to make sure that you have all the fire prevention tools to keep you and your family safe.
