If you are caring for a bedridden or otherwise immobile loved one, or if you, yourself are disabled, does your local fire department know where you are located in your so they can get you out in case of a fire?
Take the time time to call the FD closest to you and give them a floor plan of your home with the location of you or your loved one. They will enter it in their computer data base.
No one wants to think of a fire breaking out in your home. But it’s always better to be safe than sorry.
Your story brings to mind a man who died while on his tractor. The responding EMT took a wad of cash out of his pocket, only discovered after another first responder saw what he was doing and reported it.
