Age & Fire


Who's at highest risk and why?

According to a report from the National Fire Protection Association, "Children under 5 and adults 65 or older face the highest risk of fire death, although they do not account for the majority of fire fatalities. The risk of non-fatal fire injury is highest for those between 20 and 49.” According to the NFPA’s article Demographic and Other Characteristics Related to Fire Deaths or Injuries (PDF), there are other factors to include education, income, and lifestyle choices like smoking.
