According to the National Fire Protection Association, there were 1,345,500 fires reported in the United States in 2015, and these fires caused 3,280 civilian deaths, 15,700 civilian injuries, and $14.3 billion in property damage. It is overwhelming how statistics showed the number of deaths and how it could have been avoided or prevented.
Dan Gersh, CR, president and CEO of Maxons Restorations, Inc. in New York City, stated in an interview that the five most preventable causes of fire are cooking-related fires, unattended candles, burdened electrical connections, lighting/appliance malfunctions and smoking cigarettes or cigars.
