As the United States observes National Fire Safety Month this February, let us refresh our awareness again about the potential danger posed by fires. A residential fire is reported every 861 seconds in the U.S., leading to 2,6052 deaths, 11,5752 injuries and an estimated loss of $7.2 Billion2 in damage, not including the loss of family memories which are priceless. In fact, 1 in 4 homes will report a fire in an average lifetime.3

Sadly, in 60% of all home fire deaths, no working smoke detector was present, many due to poor maintenance4. Be part of the solution this National Fire Safety Month! Always inform your Customers that you sell and install smoke detectors that connected to their alarm panels, will call out to emergency services – saving lives and property.

If the homeowner tells you that they already have smoke detectors as part of their home, show them the innovative 2GIG-SDS1-345 Smoke Detector Sensor or the EC-FF345 Encore FireFighter, which will work with their 2GIG system to alert the local fire department. This National Fire Safety Month, call your 2GIG Sales Representative or 2GIG Distributor for more information on these life-saving solutions.
