Protect your family, protect your home. Every home should be equipped with a fire extinguisher and a smoke detector. Yet, as indispensable as these devices may be when a fire breaks out, they can do nothing to prevent a blaze from happening in the first place. Now, thanks to cutting-edge, smart home technology, there is a product that can stop kitchen fires before they have a chance to spread throughout your home.

Fire Avert was developed by active firefighter Peter Thorpe. Over the years, he responded to hundreds of fires, a good share of which had their origins in the kitchen. In fact, the National Fire Protection Association estimates that unattended cooking appliances are responsible for around 162,400 blazes each year, making them the number one cause of house fires.

Thorpe came up the idea of FireAvert, and developed and designed the solution to offer independence and peace of mind for the user. Kitchen fires often happen when people try multi-tasking while cooking or simply leave the stove unattended. Even if you just turn your back on the stove for one minute you run the risk for a major disaster It’s a careless mistake that can put you and your loved ones in a dangerous situation. According to Liberty Mutual, 42% of consumers have left the kitchen to chat while food is cooking, leaving the stove or oven unattended. Cooking is the number one cause of home fires.

Stop Kitchen Fires

Fire Avert operates on the principle that where there is smoke, there will be fire. When your smoke detector alerts you to the presence of smoke, Fire Avert immediately shuts off the stove and oven before there is a single flame. The device needs no batteries and easily attaches to the back of the appliance. No special tools or mechanical skills are required.

Keep in mind, Fire Avert depends on a working smoke detector to function properly; one more reason to change the batteries every six months and check the device regularly to make sure it is in working order. Fire Avert is also designed to distinguish between a potential fire and normal cooking related smoke, giving you thirty seconds to clear the air before cutting the power.

If you cook in your home, Fire Avert is a safety feature you can’t afford to be without. You should always keep a fire extinguisher close at hand and rehearse your families exit plan in the event that a fire does break out.

Fire Avert is reusable. It comes with a 30-day money back guarantee and a one year warranty. For more information, and to order, go to www.fireavert.com
