Our Goal

People should know where the majority of fires are occurring, why they start and how to use safe practices in order to reduce their risks.

Fire Extinguishers

Unfortunately, many people have little or no knowledge of how to use a fire extinguisher. To be safe, everyone should have the confidence to know how to properly use a Fire Extinguisher.

Kitchen Fires

Kitchen fires are THE MOST COMMON type of residential structure fire. They account for more home fires than the next 5 types of home structure fires combined.

Heating Equipment

Heating equipment is the second leading cause of home structure fires. Space heaters are often used incorrectly; for instance, space heaters should never be plugged into an extension cord.

Electrical Fires

Electrical fires are the third leading cause of residential structure fires. Faulty wiring is typically the number one reason for an electrical fire. All electrical work should be performed by a professional, qualified electrician.

Intentional Fires

Arson. This is the forth leading cause of home structure fires in the United States, causing over a billion dollars in property loss. They injure over 1,300 civilians and claim over 440 lives annually.

Smoking Fires

The leading cause of fire deaths in the United States. They're completely preventable and, simply put, all smoking should be done outside in a safe and common area.

Dryer Fires

Dryer fires are the sixth leading cause of home structure fires. Cleaning the lint screen after every use is imperative. Every year a qualified technician should clean the venting system.
