Fire safety and the older adult


It’s a sad, but true, statistic that older adults are more likely to die in a home fire than the general population. According to the U.S Fire Administration, adults 65 and older are 2.5 times more likely to die in a fire, and that number increases to 4.5 times more likely when they reach age 85. Although older adults represented 13 percent of our population, they suffered 36 percent of all fire deaths in 2011.
