YOUR COMMUNITY MUST INVEST
IN FIRE PREVENTION
Increased Fire Prevention Will Save Lives and Reduce Injuries in Your Community
Every state, every town and every neighborhood suffers from the effects of fire. In 2009 there were 1,348,500 fires in the United States. Those fires resulted in the death of 3,010 people and 17,050 injuries*.
The vast majority of those fires were caused by people's actions**. More than that, most people don't know how preventable fires are. A strong advocacy program can help you get the word out.
