Fire is a serious natural disaster but not worth much attention??

A survey commissioned by the Society for Fire Protection Engineers and conducted in Feb 2009 reveals that Americans ranked building safety, comfort and amenities higher than fire safety. Only environmental friendliness was ranked below fire.

The survey reveals that 45% believe fire is the natural disasters that will most likely cause harm to them or their family. Included in this list were lighting strikes (18%), hurricanes (15%), earthquakes (12%) and floods (10%).

58% worry about the dangers of fire less than once a year. At the same time, wealthy Americans think about the risk of fire less frequently than those with lower incomes.
