Big News! Fire Avert, averted it’s first known fire.

Just 4 days ago we received a call telling us thank you for protecting their home. On Sunday afternoon an older lady who lives alone started cooking a grilled cheese sandwich. She told us she started cooking and went in her bedroom for just a minute. She quickly forgot about her cheese sandwich and fell asleep on her bed.

She awoke to the smoke alarms sounding. By the time she got to the stove it was already turned off thanks to Fire Avert. Luckily she was home and she had a Fire Avert installed. She told us she was glad to see Fire Avert work and do it’s job. She simply flipped the breaker and she was ready to cook again.

I can’t help to be happy about this story even though she was awoken by the smoke alarm. Even if this lady had been outside in her garden or out talking to a neighbor and forgot about her cheese sandwich Fire Avert still would have worked and turned off the stove preventing a stove fire. This same story happens hundreds of times every day and Fire Avert can help.

Most times we get phone calls or emails form people telling about their story and that’s why they are ordering a Fire Avert. It is nice to get a phone call telling us the opposite that they had a Fire Avert and it worked.

Just in case you are not familiar with stove fires, let me educate you. Stove fires are the #1 cause of home fires in the US and in most other countries as well. According to NFPA a home kitchen fire is reported every 3.5 minutes in the US. The average cost of each kitchen fire according to NFPA is over $6,000. Some of these fires are easily $50,000 in damage. Stove fires are also the #1 cause of home fire injuries and the 2nd most common cause of home fire deaths.

Stove Fires are so common that most homes will experience at least 1 stove fire in it’s lifetime. So please cook safe and protect your home with Fire Avert.
