1,240,000 Reported Fires in the United States

According to the most recent data from the National Fire Protection Association there were 1,240,000 fires reported in the United States in 2013.

3,240 civilian deaths occurred due to fires and 15,925 civilian injuries resulted due to fires.

The total property damage due to fires in 2013 exceeded $11.5 Billion dollars.

“Most people think about getting an alarm system to prevent property theft” say’s Doyle Serink from Ion Security.   “People don’t realize that alarm systems can do much more.  An alarm system can detect fire, smoke, water and low temperature conditions, notifying the homeowner and  authorities quickly at first signs of trouble, often minimizing the damage and loss.”
