A home fire can double in as little as 30 seconds taking a small controllable fire to a large uncontrollable and deadly fire in as little as 3 minutes. In todays homes, once a fire is detected you have as little as 1-2 minutes to escape safely. 84% of fire deaths occur in the home, where you and your family should be the safest. Unfortunately though, many people are unprepared in how to escape if a home fire breaks out. Most homes have the minimum, if any, smoke detection and that increases your risk of dying in a home fire by 50%. One of the most important things people need to know in the event of a home fire is 2 ways out. Many times though, if you are on a floor greater than the 1st, you may have to jump or be overtaken by the smoke, this is why the NFPA recommends that an emergency escape ladder be in all occupied rooms above the first floor, or at a minimum of ONE per floor.
The most important ladder you can purchase is the ladder that can save you or your family’s life. In the event of a fire or other emergency you may not be able to use your normal routes to escape. In these situations an escape ladder may save your life or the lives of those you love. Smoke isn’t like it is in the movies, it’s dark, superheated, full of toxic gases, causes you to become disoriented, and can cause death in as little as a few short breaths. Many victims, some including entire families, have been found on upper floors because of their inability to escape down the stairs to other routes. Emergency escape ladders are a simple, inexpensive item that can save lives. We offer the top of the line ladder, and if in the Knoxville area we will deliver to your home and help you set it up and give you and your family hands on instruction.
