Hearing loss and forgetfulness become more common as we age, resulting in a greater risk of fire danger when living alone. To minimize the potentially devastating results of a fire, we recommend the strong 2-part strategy for fire safety outlined below. According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) people ofer the age of 65 have a 2.5 times greater risk of dying in a kitchen fire. Kitchens can be made safer for the elderly…
Senior Fire Prevention
Forgetfulness can happen at any age, as distractions are everywhere. It is no secret; so-called “senior moments” become more frequent as time goes on.
Fire Alert System for Seniors
Hearing loss may cause even a healthy senior to sleep through an otherwise life-saving smoke alarm. Standard smoke alarms may not be enough for your loved-one to waken in the event of a fire emergency.
We recommend taking no chances with something so serious. An affordable secondary alarm is necessary to help alert sleeping seniors. Triggered by a standard smoke detector, the Lifetone Bedside Fire Alarm produces its own signal at a lower frequency (520 Hz) for detection by those with little to no hearing.
Simultaneously, emergency alerts are given visually, auditory instructions are announced “Fire, get out,” and a tactile bed-shaker ensures your loved-one is not caught unaware.
