A SAFETY TIP FOR ALL ON HEATING EQUIPMENT
In 2006, heating equipment was involved in an estimated 64,100 reported structure fires, 540 civilian deaths, 1,400 civilian injuries, and $943 million in direct property damage. In 2006 most home heating fire deaths (73%) and, injuries (43%0 and half (51%) of associated direct property damage involved stationary or portable space heaters. Space heating poses a much higher risk of fire, death, injury, and loss per million users than central heating. Comparisons of risk among different types of space heaters of different types of central show no clear, consistent, significant differences.
