PROVIDE SAFE LIVING WITH PIONEERING TECHNOLOGY

Ontario’s Fire Marshall found that the risk of cooking fires is significantly higher in subsidized housing than multi-family buildings generally. In many cases, aging structures can make them much more susceptible to the proliferation of fire. The equipment within the building may be in need of repair or replacement. With limited budgets, addressing necessary repairs can be a challenging, long-term endeavour.

MULTI-FAMILY HOUSING

Multi-family apartment buildings have a higher risk for cooking fires than any other type of building. 74% of all fires in multi-family residences are the result of cooking – that is nearly double the rate for other buildings. The vast majority of multi-family residences using electric stoves have electric coil stoves, which contribute disproportionately to cooking fires.

  • Between 2013-15, an average of 109,700 multi-family residential fires were reported each year and for every reported cooking fire, another 30 to 50 are unreported.
  • On average, these fires caused approximately 405 deaths, 3,975 injuries and $1.4 billion in property loss annually.

AFFORDABLE HOUSING

Vulnerable populations, aging infrastructure, and stretched budgets: The majority of Public Housing providers have unique features that can make them particularly susceptible to the risk of cooking fires. The very people that Public Housing is meant to serve are also among those at the highest risk for cooking fires and cooking fire injuries. Many tenants, especially the elderly, cope with impaired cognitive or physical abilities which both increase the risk for cooking fires and their ability to respond to emergency situations.
  • Cooking is the leading cause of multi-family apartment building fires (74%)*.
  • Ontario’s Fire Marshall found that the risk of cooking fires is significantly higher in subsidized housing than multi-family buildings generally.
  • Seniors over 65 are twice as likely to die in a fire; over 75, three times; over 85, four times as likely.

SENIOR HOUSING

Independent/assisted living seniors may struggle with physical health, disabilities, independence and diminished faculties, which ultimately limits their mobility, capacity and alertness. These factors not only increase the risk of fires, but when a cooking fire ignites their perception of danger, responsiveness and ability to navigate themselves to safety are severely compromised. Cooking fires also cause millions of dollars in damage, not to mention trauma for residents and their families.

  • From 2009 to 2013, cooking equipment was involved in a staggering two-thirds (66%) of nursing home fires in the US.
  • Seniors over 65 years of age are twice as likely to die in a fire; adults 75 years and older are 3 times as likely to die; and those over 85 are 4 times as likely perish.

COLLEGE & UNIVERSITY

College or university residences, on-campus apartments, common rooms and fraternities are all vulnerable to an easily distracted population with limited cooking or fire safety experience. It is impossible to monitor every cooking source or control cooking behaviour, that is why prevention is so important… and effective!
  • Six of every seven fires in college dormitories start from cooking.
  • From 2003 to 2013, reported fires in campus dorms increased by 23%.
  • Between 2000 and 2015, smoke alarms were missing or tampered with in 58% of all fatal campus fires.

HOTEL & HOSPITALITY

Hotel and motel fires cause damage and loss in countless and unexpected ways. Guests are unfamiliar with the cooking equipment and may be unaware of safety procedures and routes. News of an incident can now travel faster and wider than the fire itself, causing damage to a host’s reputation. Add lost income, insurance, legal, relocation costs and more, and a cooking fire is no holiday.

  • At 46%, cooking is the leading cause of hotel and motel fires.
  • Every hotel/motel fire costs an average of more than $16,000.
  • Reported hotel & motel structure fires result in annual losses of $84 million in direct property damage every year. Add in costs from unreported fires and the numbers are likely much, much higher.

OFFICE SPACES

While office spaces may not be as equipped with kitchen facilities, fire risk and nuisance alarms remain a significant threat. Fire in an office building endangers lives and can jeopardize financial stability and professional reputation. Beyond the possibility of fatalities and property damage, individuals may face unemployment, and the community could suffer the loss of essential services the business provides.

Ignoring fire prevention measures can result in catastrophic consequences.

  • There are more than 200 workplace fires per day, with more than 5,000 people injured by workplace fires annually.
  • 22% of the reported fires in office properties began in the kitchen or cooking area.
  • From 2007-2011, departments responded to an average of 3,340 fires in office properties per year.
