In 2015 32 Iowans Lost Their Lives in Fires

According to the State Fire Marshal’s office about a third of those lives could have been saved with the use a working smoke detector. In 2014 42 died and in 2013, 26 fire-related deaths occurred in structures.

Causes are later determined but saving lives has to happen before there is a fire. Everyone should have an escape plan along with an extinguisher and probably a second-floor ladder for use out a window. A working smoke detector is essential. Working, means the batteries have to work, which means you should be changing them on your birthday or some other day each year. Pick a day and then add it to your job list.
