We have just been employed to represent the family of someone who was killed in a fire. They lived in an apartment, and the deceased person was on the second floor when a fire broke out on the first floor. Unfortunately, there was no means of escape, and there were no safety measures in place. This was a landlord situation, and the landlord should have made sure that the tenants were protected in the event of a fire.

It is easy to overlook these issues, but they could save a life. Think about it. Talk about it. Tell your Landlord about these products.
