Firefighters say a Dothan apartment complex was saved by a simple new device. The device called the StoveTop FireStop had been installed in every kitchen at Beverley Crossing. When a stove fire started and was put out by the device, apartment managers and firefighters took notice. The StoveTop FireStop works like an automatic fire extinguisher. When flames reach it, a flame retardant powder is released stopping fire in its tracks. The Dothan Fire Department is now installing the devices in some homes.
Working with local senior centers, Alzheimer’s organizations, and support groups, we’ve identified a large number of those so far and are installing those in those homes of the at-risk citizen.
The price for a pair of FireStops about $50.
