Fire Is Everyone’s Fight®

Fire is Everyone's Fight is a national initiative to unite the fire service, life safety organizations and professionals to reduce home fire injuries, deaths and property loss by changing how people think about fire and fire prevention.

Partner with us: we are stronger together!

USFA recognizes partnerships as a critical means of delivering accurate and consistent safety messages to the community. We invite fire departments, life safety organizations and fire and life safety professionals to partner on this important initiative. Once you join, we ask you to use the Fire Is Everyone's Fight graphic and tagline on your existing and new materials.

Home fire deaths continue to rise despite increased community risk reduction activities like home safety surveys and smoke alarm installation and education campaigns. Our nation's fire and emergency medical services need to speak with one voice on fire and life safety to relay clear and consistent messages.

Together we can inspire and empower our communities to Step Up for Fire Safety.

KNOW the facts about electrical fires.

Over 80% of home electrical fires occur in 1- and 2-family homes.

Home electrical fires result in over twice the dollar loss per fire than nonelectrical home fires.

Home electrical fires start most often in bedrooms.

DO ask community residents to check their wiring and appliances to make sure they are mitigating electrical fire risks.

Plug major appliances directly into a wall outlet.

Don't overload power strips and extension cords.

Check appliance and other electrical cords for damage before using them.

Have flood-damaged appliances and home wiring inspected and repaired by a qualified repair company or licensed electrician.
