Understanding the Risk:

Cooking fires are a menacing concern for older adults. Mild changes in memory and other thinking skills are common as we age (APA). As a result, 58 percent of those who lost their lives in cooking fires were aged 55 or older (NFPA).

The vulnerability of older people is further highlighted by the fact that they are 2.6 times more likely to die in fires than the general population (FEMA). These statistics underscore the urgency for proactive safety measures.

FireAvert's Response:

In response to these alarming statistics, FireAvert has developed The Automatic Stove Shutoff designed to address the risks associated with kitchen fires as well as provide peace of mind to you. Let's dive into the key features that make FireAvert the ideal solution for safeguarding your elderly loved ones.

Automated Safety:

One of the standout features of FireAvert's Automatic Stove Shutoff is its automated safety mechanism. In the event of a fire threat, the system acts swiftly by automatically shutting off the stove, effectively preventing a fire from starting. This immediate response minimizes the risk of cooking-related accidents significantly and provides a crucial layer of protection for your older relatives.
