Did you know that home fires make up almost a quarter of all fire department calls? American Restoration Water and Fire, LLC has seen firsthand the damage that even a small fire can do to a home. Fire safety and prevention knowledge is key to preventing more home fires and saving lives.
According to the National Fire Protection Association, between the years of 2014-2018, a five-year study was conducted and it showed that nearly 353,100 calls a year to all US Fire Departments were based on home fires. There are five causes for home fires: cooking, heating, smoking materials, electrical and light disturbances, and intentional fire setting. Home fires alone cause more than 2,000 deaths a year, and these were likely instances that could have been avoided.
At American Restoration Water and Fire, LLC we understand that accidents happen and sometimes, the way a fire starts is unpredictable, even when steps are taken to prevent home fires. During the five-year study, cooking at home was the number one cause for the fire.
