MedFlight911 Air Ambulance Celebrates Fire Prevention Week

As an advanced air ambulance provider, some of the most heartbreaking cases we see involve burn victims. A few months ago, we told you the story of transporting a young burn victim from Ukraine to Boston so that he could get treatment for the severe injuries he'd sustained in a house fire – a fire that also claimed the lives of the rest of his family, including his parents, grandparents, and siblings.

That tragic story was in my mind recently when I realized that October 7-13 is National Fire Prevention Week. Held every year at the beginning of October, Fire Prevention Week reminds all of us of the importance of taking some basic steps to prevent fires, and the damage and injuries they can cause.

Here are some facts about fire to keep in mind, from the National Fire Protection Association:

  • In 2010, there were more than 350,000 home fires in the U.S.
  • Those fires caused more than 13,000 injuries and 2,640 deaths.
  • Cooking, heating equipment (such as fireplaces and space heaters) and smoking are among the leading causes of home fires.
  • Roughly two-thirds of fire deaths happen in homes without working smoke detectors.

How can you protect yourself and avoid becoming a statistic? Consider these steps:

  • Make sure you have a working smoke detector(s) in your home. Check the batteries at least once a year.
  • Have an escape route from your home, and practice it with your family.
  • Keep a fire extinguisher in an easily accessible place in your home.
  • Be cautious when using candles, which can easily start a fire.
  • If you smoke, take precautions to avoid an accidental fire, such as not smoking in bed.
  • Consider installing automatic sprinklers in your home, since these reduce the risk of fire deaths by more than 80%.

Many home fires can be avoided through some commonsense precautions, while the risk of injury and death can be reduced by having smoke alarms and an escape plan. Both adults and children should be well versed in fire safety practices, since accidents can happen at any time, and fires can quickly spread out of control.

At MedFlight911 air ambulance, we encourage everyone to practice fire safety, both during Fire Prevention Week and throughout the rest of the year!
