Fire Facts

In 2019, fire departments responded to an estimated 1.3 million fires. These fires caused roughly 3,700 civilian fire deaths and 16,600 reported civilian fire injuries. Property damage was estimated at $14.8 billion.

On average, a fire department responded to a fire somewhere in the US every 24 seconds in 2019. A home structure fire was reported every 93 seconds, a home fire death occurred every three hours and 10 minutes, and a home fire injury occurred every 43 minutes.

More than one-third of the fires (481,500 or 37 percent) occurred in or on structures. Most fire losses were caused by these fires, including 2,980 civilian fire deaths (80 percent); 13,900 civilian fire injuries (84 percent); and $12.3 billion in direct property damage (83 percent)

One of every five fires occurred in one- or two-family homes, yet these fires caused nearly two-thirds of the civilian fire deaths (65 percent) and more than half of the civilian fire injuries (53 percent). The 6 percent of fires in apartments caused 10 percent of the civilian fire deaths and 20 percent of the injuries.

Smoke Alarms

Properly placed smoke alarms double the likelihood of survival of a house fire.

Smoke Alarm Tips

Alarms should be replaced every eight to ten years, and for smoke alarms that use traditional batteries, batteries should be changed once a year.

Smoke alarms should be tested every month

Install smoke alarms on every level, in every sleeping area and outside every bedroom of the building.

Ionization and photoelectric smoke alarms are better at detecting different kinds of potentially fatal fires. The US Fire Administration recommends every household be equipped with both kinds of alarms, or dual sensor alarms.

If you need assistance with installing the alarms or need assistance with accessing alarms please call us at (574) 753-3102.
