This is the story of fire that the statistics won't show you. This is the story of The Survivors.

 

 

 

Every day seven people die from American home fires, and another 13,000 are injured each year. These statistics, while important, are only a small piece of America's complex home fire problem. 

There are ripple effects to fire that the statistics don’t explain and the nightly news rarely covers. Once a home’s flames have been extinguished and TV reporters have turned their gaze elsewhere, there are real people left in a fire’s wake. Who are these people? What is their new normal, now that their lives have been forever transitioned by tragedy? We are about to give you a powerful look at the lingering effects of fire in America.

The National Fire Protection Association presents The Survivors, a multi-part podcast series that takes an extensive look at Wyoming resident Feike van Dijk, his wife Noelle, and their family. In 2014, they experienced the unthinkable when a home fire killed two of their children. The podcast showcases the lifelong toll fire has taken on this family and the people responsible for burn treatment and recovery in America. Weaving in perspectives from the fire service and America’s top safety advocates, this series showcases why Feike’s experience isn’t an anomaly. You’ll also learn about a proven technology that can significantly reduce fire death and injury at home, and the powerful forces spending millions of dollars to keep it out of there.
