LOS ANGELES, May 6 /PRNewswire/ — Here’s a way to help protect your child and the family pet in the event of a fire. A company specializing in home safety products has created fire rescue decals to be placed on windows and doors to alert firefighters to save children and pets inside.
The fluorescent orange fire rescue decals say: “CHILD ALERT™, In Case of Fire, SAVE Child INSIDE.” Another version reads: “In Case of Fire, SAVE ___ Children INSIDE.” A total of eight versions are available and can be purchased online at http://www.esafetyalert.com.
“People are horrified when they realize how helpless their children and pets would be in a fire,” says Todd Appleman, creator of the fire rescue decals. “More than 3,000 children die annually in home fires and thousands of family pets perish each year. Many of these tragedies could be avoided if firefighters had better information about who might be inside.”
“Fires create heat and poisonous gases that can kill in a matter of seconds, says Appleman. “Having a smoke alarm can dramatically increase the chances to survive a fire, and fire rescue decals alert firefighters of who might be inside when they arrive on the scene. Having this combination in place can mean the difference between life and death.”
eSafetyAlert also offers fire rescue decals for senior citizens and people with disabilities. The company makes donations to organizations that assist firefighters, rescue workers and the canine search and rescue teams that were involved in the recovery operations following the September 11 terrorist attacks.
