  • Focus on People with Disabilities
    Each year an estimated 2,655 deaths and 13,025 injuries occur as the result of residential building fires. The risk of death or injury from fire is even greater for people with physical, mental, or sensory disabilities. Declining mobility, health, sight, and hearing may limit a person’s ability to take the quick action necessary to escape during a fire emergency.
  • Focus on Fire Safety: Children
    Did you know that 50 percent of child fire deaths affect those under the age of 5? Escaping from a fire can be difficult for very young children because they generally lack the motor skills and mental capabilities needed to quickly escape a burning building.

Prevent Fire. Save Lives.

A Fire Safety Campaign for People 50-Plus

At age 50 you’ve worked for years to enjoy the freedom and experiences life has to offer. At age 65 you’ve become a mover and shaker—meeting new people, traveling, spending time with the grandchildren and learning new hobbies. Don’t let your years of memories and your life today go up in flames.

As you age, your risk of death from fire increases significantly. Practice safe smoking, safe cooking, and safe heating in your home. With a little fire safety know-how and this website http://www.usfa.fema.gov/campaigns/50plus/index.shtm, you can help save lives from unintentional fires, including your own.
