CSFD’s free program reduces stovetop fire risks

By Carter Hall, CSFD Public Information Officer

Cooking equipment is the leading cause of home structure fires and injuries and the second leading cause of home fire deaths.​ The elderly are the most at risk.

The College Station Fire Department can help minimize that risk for senior adults and people with mobility issues. Thanks to a federal grant, we can provide and install an automatic, easy-to-use StoveTop FireStop fire suppression system for free. The device is available to College Station residents at least 65 years old.

If you or someone you know would benefit by having a StoveTop FireStop installed, contact  Community Risk Reduction Specialist Christina Seidel at cseidel@cstx.gov or 979-764-3705.
