If you own a CO2, water, or a Class K fire extinguisher…this blog post is for you.

A smoke detector is a must have gadget for homes and other commercial buildings. Even in states that do not require homeowners to have at least one smoke alarm per home, this device is still an essential gadget that can alert people of a fire.

No matter the reason, there can be no doubt that identifying trends and statistics of fire victims can help us gain another level of understanding of fires and how to prevent them.
In this post we will look at characteristics of home fire victims.
When outdoor fires occur, they pose a very real danger to everyone. Not only can they take a toll in terms of human lives, but these fires regularly cause extensive damage in towns and cities.
