Plan for Fire Safety!

Fire safety is a critical issue for older adults. The facts speak for themselves: Americans over the age of 65 are one of the groups at greatest risks of dying in a fire. People over the age of 80 die in fires at a rate three times higher than the rest of the population. While older adults are disproportionately represented in the number of fire deaths, there are a number of strategic and precautionary actions older adults and those that care for them can take to dramatically reduce the risk of becoming a fire casualty.
