Each family needs fire safety plan

By Staff
The Alabama Department of Public Health reminds you that using smoke alarms and practicing fire escape plans can reduce injuries and loss of life. Most fire deaths occur during the late fall and winter months.
During this three-year period home fires accounted for 73 percent of all reported structure fires, 91 percent of structure fire deaths, 86 percent of structure fire injuries, and 69 percent of direct property loss. Sixty-three percent of reported home fire deaths resulted from fires in homes with no smoke alarms or no working smoke alarms.
In Alabama alone 91 fire deaths were reported during 2007. Seventy percent of the fires reported were residential fires, and 57 percent of fire deaths occurred between November and March.
Remember to:
