As a Paramedic with a volunteer fire department, an active Hatzalah member, a physician assistant specializing in emergency medicine, and a Doctor of Health Sciences, I am painfully aware that some of the most horrific emergencies involve burns and fire related injuries. Many but not all fires are preventable. Accidental fires are a fact of life. When fires do happen, injury and loss of life are not inevitable. Sadly, victims often become trapped simply because of a lack of fire plan or escape route.
Unfortunately, it has become all too common to hear of fire related tragedies within the Jewish community. Maccabee Aish was founded to promote fire safety and prevention to this population. I encourage you to participate in our programs. You will learn how to protect your family from increased fire risk and assure your family’s safety through the installation of smoke detectors and fire extinguishers in your home; the purchase of a fire escape ladder for every occupied upper floor room; and the development and practice of a fire escape plan for your family.
Through spreading our message to community organizations, schools, and synagogues; may we merit to never again hear of a fire related tragedy.
