|According to the NFPA…
“It is estimated that each household will experiencethree (usually unreported) fires per decade and two fires serious enough toreport to a fire department per lifetime.” A.29.2 Fire Danger In The Home
often very little time between the detection of a fire and the time it becomes
deadly. This interval can be as little as
1 or 2 minutes.” A.29.2 Family Escape Plan
two types of fires to which household fire-warning equipment must respond. One
is a rapidly developing, high heat fire. The other is a slow, smoldering fire.
Either can produce smoke and toxic gases.” A.29.2
A.29.1.1 Chapter 29 does not
attempt to cover all equipment, methods, and requirements that might be
necessary or advantageous for the protection of lives and property from fire. NFPA 72
is a “Minimum Code“.
The latest NFPA code
book goes in depth about what homeowners should consider for complete
protection, but this in unknown or overlooked to most individuals and
contractors and even to many officials.
The minimum protection today is a smoke detector outside
each separate sleeping area, one per floor and in each bedroom. If this is what you have in your home, then
you may think you have great protection, but in fact you have the minimum. This still does not address quality. Most
homes today are equipped with ionization smoke detectors only, which are the
cheapest you can buy…and proven to be the poorest responding to the common
smoldering type of fire.
If you read further in the codes, you will find that what is
recommended is to have smoke detectors in every room that we can (you should
not locate smoke detectors in or near kitchens or bathrooms, garages, attics,
some utility areas, near ceiling fans and more) and heat detectors in most
areas, but especially where you can’t put smoke detectors.
So what level of protection do you have in your home? More importantly, what level of protection do
