Fire Costs Lives and Injuries
Every state, every town and every neighborhood suffers from the effects of fire. In 2011, there were 1,389,500 fires in the United States. Those fires resulted in the death of 3,005 people and 17,500 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.
