Close Before You Doze

In the United Kingdom, the Hackett Review has led to increasing awareness of door closers' role in fire safety. Some of the benefits of automatic door closers like Mindr™ are the prevention of the spread of fire and smoke and dangerous toxins that can lead to the suffocation of the people inside the house. Without having an automatic door closer, simply forgetting to close the door can be a deadly and costly mistake.

Below are some recently released news articles showing more evidence of the importance of closing your door before going to bed.

Burton, Michigan • March 12, 2020

On February 15, a fire broke out in Burton, Michigan. Once all of the flames were extinguished, the firefighters found one room that was practically untouched by the fire - because the door was closed. The fire department said that if the whole family had been in the bedroom with the door shut, it would have been a survivable spot. The fire department is now using this incident as an example of why sleeping with the door closed is an excellent idea.

 

Abingdon, Maryland • March 7, 2020

A space heater caused a fire in an Abingdon, Maryland, home. The closed door of the room where the fire started prevented the fire from spreading to the rest of the house. The fire marshal stated, "A closed door can isolate the fire's flow, reduce the room temperature, and keep carbon monoxide levels down." No injuries were reported with this fire. Without the door shut, there could have been more damage and possibly injuries.

Warwick, United Kingdom • March 12, 2020

Firefighters were called to the scene of a two-story house. The fire had started in the ground-floor bathroom. The property owners were disabled and unable to leave the house. The fire was found to have originated from an electric toilet in the bathroom. The fire was contained by the owners shutting the bathroom door. There was a lot of smoke, and the home needed to be aired out, but the property was fine on the whole. One of the firefighters on the scene said, "This illustrates the importance of shutting your door before you go to bed and making sure you check that all of your smoke alarms are working."

Dublin, Ireland • March 10, 2020

A house was on fire, and firefighters rescued two family pets from the blaze. Breathing equipment was placed on the dogs and they were taken to safety. The fire's cause was found to be a phone or tablet left charging under a pillow in the bedroom. The bedroom door was closed, and this helped the fire to be contained to only one room. Other photos released by the fire department show that the space that the fire had been confined to was utterly destroyed.

The amount of news that is generated about this subject is astounding. There is a quote from a fire professional telling the public about the importance of closing doors before you go to sleep in almost every instance.
