Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) September 18, 2013
Fire Avert by Active Fire Prevention was recently featured on CBS affiliate KUTV2. The news story highlighted Fire Avert’s support of local Salt Lake City resident Virginia Cannon who recently suffered a stove fire after leaving food cooking on an unattended stove.
According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), stove fires start about every 3.5 minutes across the United States.
Virginia Cannon had just put some butter in a pan before being sidetracked talking with friends, becoming another unfortunate statistic of the NFPA. Luckily Virginia survived, but only after getting hurt in the traumatic experience. She was also displaced from her home as it was repaired from roughly $50,000 in smoke and fire damage. After hearing her story, Fire Avert decided to help.
Fire Avert commits to donate 20 percent of every sale for the next 30 days to Virginia’s fire relief fund.
Fire Avert founder, Peter Thorpe, has hopes of establishing and growing fire relief projects across the nation. “Fire Avert is in business to help save lives from tragedy and trauma,” states Peter. “For those not fortunate to have a Fire Avert in their home to prevent a fire, we want to help get them back on their feet.”
About Fire Avert
The Fire Avert is a revolutionary fire prevention product that can easily be installed in any home with an electric stove. The Fire Avert was conceived by firefighter Peter Thorpe as he consistently responded to fire calls where someone had left something cooking on the stove. The best-case scenario is the firefighters arrive in time to remove the smoldering food and shut off the stove. The worst-case scenario is the home or building is in flames. After two years of product development, a 100 percent reliable and market ready product is now on shelves and available online to prevent fires and save lives.
