Fire kills more than 4,000 and injures more than 23,000 people in our nation every year.
In other words, someone in the United States dies every 2 hours because of fire. A majority of these deaths occur in homes at night, after people have gone to bed.
The Topeka Fire Department Division of Fire Prevention is dedicated to preventing these disasters before they happen. Therefore, this portion of our website offers some basic home fire safety information.
