Fire Safety for Older Adults

 

Did you know  that older adults have an increased risk of dying in a fire.
 
  • In 2010, older adults (ages 65 and older) represented 13 percent of the United States population but suffered 35 percent of all fire deaths.
  • Older adults are 2.7 times more likely to die in a fire than the general population. The risk worsens as we age. People ages 85 and older are 4.6 times more likely to die in a fire.
  • Older adult males are 62 percent more likely to die in a fire than older adult females.
