Life+Gear is proud to announce the debut our revolutionary new Fire Safety Night Light, which is already winning high praise from fire officials from coast to coast. Fire prevention experts are calling it one of the most important fire protection devices since the smoke detector.
Life+Gear will officially launch this essential new life-saving product during National Fire Prevention Week (October 6th to 12th), when families across the USA take stock of their home safety and protection.
The Fire Safety Night Light is a great everyday night light, automatically coming on at dusk and going off at dawn. Then, when its patent-pending technology hears a smoke alarm, it instantly switches to a brighter light mode. This bright light can help you and your family find the way out of a burning house that may be rapidly filling with thick, blinding smoke.
According to the United States Fire Administration, smoke kills more people in house fires than the flames, and asphyxiation is the leading cause of fire deaths -- exceeding burns by three-to-one.
Most people assume it’s very bright inside a burning home or business, but fires actually produce billowing, thick black smoke resulting in near total darkness.
It takes only minutes for a burning house to fill with smoke, and just seconds to be overcome. Breathing even the slightest amount of smoke with poisonous gasses can very quickly cause disorientation, loss of consciousness and death.
Since smoke rises, the only potentially breathable air is down low, near the floor. With the Fire Safety Night Light plugged into a low wall socket, the bright light shines where the air is more breathable -- lighting the way to safety and significantly increasing the chances of survival.
Here’s what David Paulison, former director of FEMA, former president of the International Association of Firefighters and a former fire chief has to say about the Fire Safe Night Light:
“As former Miami Dade County Fire Chief, I have seen more than my share of fires that claimed lives because of smoke inhalation, which causes far more deaths than flames. Houses fill with thick black toxic smoke very quickly. You can’t see through it. It only takes a few seconds to be overcome. Having bright lights down low on the wall, which is where we tell people get to, to find breathable air, may give them a few more seconds to get out and those seconds can mean the difference between life and death.”
And national award-winning fire educator, Tracy Koslowski of the Drexel Heights, Arizona Fire Department believes it is essential for every home.
“The Fire Safety Night Light is clearly as important a fire survival tool as the smoke detector and every home should have them. It’s one thing to be alerted or awakened by the smoke detector, which is a proven life saving invention. It’s quite another to get out alive. As a fire prevention and protection educator, I believe everyone should know the latest technology that is available for fire safety. A bright light turned on by your smoke detector is something every home should have and every homeowner should know about.”
Protect yourself and your family. Plug one in your hallway and your living room, your basement and your family room. Ensure you have the best chance to get out should your house catch fire. You have a smoke detector to alert you to the smoke and fire. Now, make sure you can see your way to safety.
Power Failure Version
There is also a Fire Safety Light with Power Failure backup that turns on automatically when power fails. Power failures don’t happen often, but when the power goes out at night, it leaves your home in total darkness. Fire Safety Night Lights provide the bright light needed to see your way around your house, providing safety, comfort and relief for your family.
