Not "Stopping power" but a real concern and important.

I've responded to a few house fires to including kicking in a door and leading out 4 young adults in the middle of the night where it was said at least 2 of them would have died if I had not entered the home. Not patting myself on the back but that was a wake up in 2008.
Last night 2 neighbors a couple of doors down had a house fire and 2 adults were brought out and left in Ambulance with EMS performing CPR.

Smoke detectors, multiple powerful flashlights, and a plan to get us out quickly is my plan. HAVE A PLAN FOLKS.

I'm afraid I lost two neighbors last night. Prayers for them please.

Be honest, fair, and always prepared...

Good point Arvinator. Manufacturers recommend replacing batteries twice a year when you change clocks. Some newer detectors are sealed with 10 year batteries. Smoke detectors need to be replaced after 8 - 10 years, depending on model. Carbon monoxide detectors are a good idea, too.
