San Diego, California -- There are few things that homeowners and apartment dwellers fear more than fire and unfortunately, they have good reasons to be afraid. In 2012, there were more than 1.4 million fires that took over 3,000 lives in the U.S. alone. Additionally, a quarter of those fires were started in bedrooms.


October is Fire Prevention Month, and experts say the number-one life-saving device in case of a fire in the home is a smoke alarm in every room. As a result, firefighting professionals recommend batteries be checked and replaced annually.


Next to smoke alarms, a home fire safety lighting system is vital to help everyone find their way out of a smoke-filled house at night. With this crucial need in mind, Life+Gear has developed a full line of home safety, fire preparation products to help families ensure that they are prepared when the unexpected happens.


Life+Gear’s products include lanterns, flashlights and night lights. In fact, Life+Gear’s lanterns and flashlights offer a red flasher mode intended to help family members find each other in emergency situations – including home fires where thick, dark smoke makes it nearly impossible to find each other, or a way out.


Life+Gear also has products equipped to listen for smoke alarms to ensure the ultimate preparation in fire safety. For everyday use, the lanterns and flashlights are great for outdoor and indoor use when the power goes out. The red flasher mode and emergency strobe light are extra capabilities that help families find safety during fire emergencies.
