WORLD FIRE REPORT!

Millions of people were seriously injured. In some parts of the world entire communities were destroyed and may never recover. Economic losses due to fire are in the tens of billions. In 2010 US Fire Departments responded to 384,000 home fires. Children and older adults are at the greatest risk along with the poor. Persons living in substandard or manufactured homes are particularly vulnerable.
