U.S. Fire Administration to Introduce Fire is Everyone's Fight

According to the U.S. Fire Administration (USFA), 82 percent of all fire deaths and 76 percent of all fire injuries occur in the home. Each year, there are an estimated 360,900 home fires reported to U.S. fire departments, leading to 2,495 deaths, 13,250 injuries and over $7 billion in property loss.

Recognizing this significant toll across the country, USFA and over 170 members of the fire prevention community, including more than 70 fire departments and 75 fire and life safety partners and supporters, are joining forces with organizations like the American Red Cross and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission in an effort known as Fire is Everyone's Fight™.

Fire is Everyone's Fight™ seeks to unite fire and life safety partners under a common theme and message that both first responders and the general public play vital roles in fire prevention and detection.

USFA leaders will be joined by Fire is Everyone's Fight™ partner organizations in a media webinar to highlight the public safety importance of the new USFA effort. Home fire survivors will share their personal testimonies and fire safety information.
