The hot cider is simmering on the stove, the cookies are cooling off and the turkey is cooking in the oven. The holiday season is here, but are you ready for the unexpected? Cooking fires are the leading cause of home fires in the United States. 58% of those fires are caused by kitchen stoves alone! With FireAvert you can significantly drop that percentage and keep your family safe against dangerous fires.
The National FireProtection Association (NFPA) reported that U.S. fire departments responded to an estimated average of 162,400 home structure fires each year involving cooking equipment.

FireAvert quickly turns a stove into a smart stove to keep families, seniors and homes safe. FireAvert is the only product that prevents kitchen fires before they happen, by turning off stoves when smoke is detected. Because there is always smoke before a fire, FireAvert is activated by a smoke alarm sounding and cuts the power to the stove and oven immediately before there is a flame.
How does it work
FireAvert is plug-in ready. Your home will be protected from stove fires in minutes, simply plug it into the back of your stove. There is always smoke before fire. This is why FireAvert is activated by your smoke alarm, cutting the power to your stove and oven before there is a flame. Unattended cooking ranges are the #1 cause of home fires in the US, FireAvert helps prevent you from being another statistic.
FireAvert is plugs right into the back of the stove, protecting homes from stove fires in minutes. FireAvert syncs to the smoke alarm and when it beeps, FireAvert cuts the power to the stove.

To ensure your family has a fire-free holiday FireAvert is sharing these important tips to remember as you gather around the kitchen:
Always have a fire extinguisher around kitchens and grills, and make sure your family know how to use them.
Be sure to replace batteries in your smoke detectors. They should be tested regularly to make sure they are working.
Make sure the family knows of an exit plan if a fire were to start.
If you tend to do a lot of cooking, invest in a second timer. They're an inexpensive backup method, ensuring that your summer dishes do not overcook.
Always keep your grill a safe distance from your home.
It is always a good idea to keep a splatter mat underneath the grill, especially when your grill is on a wooden patio or deck connected to your home.
Install FireAvert to the back of your electric stove. FireAvert is a simple wall unit that automatically shuts off the stove in the event that smoke is detected.
Walk through these important fire safety guidelines with your family, and have a peace of mind during your holiday festivities. And remember, prevention is key to keeping your home fire-free.
More About FireAvert
Made and designed by Firefighters…
Saving lives and homes is what FireAvert is about. Firefighter Peter Thorpe created a solution to stop stove fires after years of fighting fires that were caused by unattended ranges. Here is his story: “En route to a fire I could see the header of smoke on the horizon. On arrival we found a large apartment complex with smoke bellowing from the structure and occupants fleeing for safety. As we pulled our hoses and forced open the door with the ax, flames and black smoke rolled out of the doorway. Tenants in nearby apartments were coughing as they fled their homes for safety. They watched helplessly as the fire spread towards their apartments. Like many other apartment fires, this tragedy was caused by unattended cooking.
It was a scene like this that motivated me to search for a solution to prevent stove fires. FireAvert is that product. FireAvert will automatically shut off the stove in the event that smoke is detected. With FireAvert you don’t have to worry about your investment going up in flames.
