More Information


The greatest causes of most apartment fires are:

  • Cooking/ Kitchen Fires
  • Heating equipment such as heaters, stoves or space heaters
  • Smoking

Be aware and take steps to stop fires before they start.

An apartment or high-rise fire is no cause for panic.  If you plan ahead and practice fire drills, your chances of survival are greatly increased.
