Close Before You Doze Campaign
Fighting Fire with Science
The Close Your Door safety initiative comes as the result of over 10 years of research by the UL Firefighter Safety Research Institute (FSRI). After proving that a closed door could potentially save lives in a fire, UL FSRI has committed to share this finding with the world. The Close Before You Doze campaign features a consumer-facing website that includes safety tips, fire facts, news and a pledge, where participants can commit to closing their doors before they doze. A closed door provides a layer of protection between you and a fire, which is especially important at night when family members may be vulnerable with little time to react.
Watch the video below to see how fire spreads in a home with doors closed and a doors open.
