A recent home fire in Los Angeles, took the life of an elderly man and injured a Los Angeles Fire Department (LAFD) Firefighter.
Every 30-minutes in the U.S., someone dies from a home fire. Two thirds of deaths happen in homes with either no smoke alarms or with non-working smoke alarms. Most victims of home fires die from smoke or toxic gases (Hall 2001). While smoking is the leading cause of fire-related deaths, cooking is the primary cause of residential fires (Ahrens 2011). Having smoke detectors, home fire sprinklers, along with carbon monoxide detectors will help to keep your family safe. Further information is below along with an option to purchase these as well as other fire safety items at the store below. Smoke alarms, home fire sprinklers, and carbon monoxide (CO) detectors protect lives. In California (and some other states) home fire sprinklers are also required by law in apartment building and newly contsructed homes. More at . . .
