Fire Avert is now shipping with breakthrough fire prevention technology to prevent stove fires before they start. In development for two years, this industry first is firefighter invented and fire marshal endorsed. Fire Avert is initially available online and in select Utah retail locations: Allred’s Ace Hardware in Pleasant Grove; Hutch’s Home Furnishings in Lehi, and Boulevard Home Furnishings in St. George. For the first time, consumers can protect loved ones from the number one source of home fires before flames erupt. Each year 5,000 persons are killed or injured because someone forgot to turn off the stove (source:NFPA.org).
“Every 3.5 minutes another cooking fire bursts into flames, causing nearly one billion dollars in damage in the U.S. alone,” states firefighter and Fire Avert inventor, Peter Thorpe. “There is nothing else on the market that prevents flames from erupting on the stove like the Fire Avert. This makes legacy stove fire suppression systems obsolete.”
In fact, the Fire Avert works in conjunction with any working smoke detector, regardless of brand. When the smoke detector beeps and if your stove is on, Fire Avert turns it off until the owner can address the situation. Then, a simple flip of the circuit breaker resets the Fire Avert and the stove is back on. No messy powders are required or new refill canisters to replace like previous technology that dumps fire suppressant on the stove only after flames erupt and reach a certain temperature. And, Fire Avert installs in minutes without special tools or training.
Support is growing for Fire Avert as firefighters, apartment owners, and concerned consumers discover the simple, yet powerful implications of stopping the #1 source of house fires before they start.
The Utah Apartment Association recently talked about Fire Avert in the LandLord Times: “Fighting kitchen fires can be a significant event in our job,” states Utah Fire Marshal, Coy Porter. “The challenge is prevention. It’s much cheaper to prevent a stove fire than it is to face its aftermath. The Fire Avert shows great potential for kitchen fire prevention.”
“This is a perfect solution to protect high risk groups such as senior living communities, persons with special needs, or families with small children,” states Thorpe. “If you own a multi-family housing unit, just multiply your risk of fire by the number of stoves in your building. Fire Avert turns off the fire hazard, even if we forget to.”
