We have had the opportunity to impact the lives of several families of fallen firefighters, as well as a number of individuals within Hillsborough County.
“One man’s trash is another one’s treasure, but for fire fighters, too much of it packed into a home will turn all of it into dangerous fuel for active fires. Fire fighters are increasingly battling fires made vastly more hazardous by hoarding.”
“Containing a fire in a home where hoarding is an issue can take twice as many fire fighters and twice as long. In the best of conditions, when rooms are sparsely furnished and clear of clutter, fire fighters sometimes must blindly follow a search pattern along walls and furniture. Excessive clutter can throw fire fighters off and seriously hamper rescue efforts.”
