Did you know that 73% of all fire related deaths occur in homes without smoke detectors?
In a test of smoke detectors, it was found that installing one smoke detector outside your bedroom door would provide at least three minutes of warning 35% of the time, while installing an additional alarm on every floor would provide at least three minutes of warning 89% of the time.
Households with the highest overall fire rates in the United States have the fewest smoke detectors.
Prevention is the cure. Education is the key.
