155 Dunlop St W.
Fact A person is killed at one of every four fires where home oxygen is in use.
The hazards of an oxygen-enriched environment are well known in the fire service. BFES has been called to fight fires where home oxygen has been a contributing factor.
Oxygen itself doesn't burn, but it assists other materials to ignite at lower temperatures and burn hotter and faster. Fabrics on furniture and clothing can absorb oxygen and hold on to this increased percentage for 20 minutes or more, depending on ventilation.
The odds of experiencing a home fire are increased when oxygen is in use; prevention is key to ensuring your safety.
Remember: Working smoke alarms are the law for every household; consider additional alarms in the area that home oxygen is in use to increase the amount of time available for escape. You may have less than one minute from the time a smoke alarm sounds to escape your home.
