Fire

Installing Oxygen Firebreaks

 

July 2021

 

In the last year, more than fifty percent of deaths in residential structure fires throughout Wyoming have been in homes with medical oxygen. 

The Wyoming State Fire Marshals Office, in coordination with Fire Departments around the state and other state agencies, is combatting this problem by promoting the installation and use of oxygen firebreaks. By installing oxygen firebreaks, we can reduce the chance of death, injury, and property damage in home fires.

What is an oxygen firebreak? An oxygen firebreak is a simple device that is installed inline in oxygen tubing. If fire impinges on this device, a two-way valve will cut off the flow of oxygen and reduce the spread of fire, thereby saving lives and property. An oxygen firebreak is also known as a fire stop valve or fire safety valve. 

 

The Powell Senior Center is partnering with Nick Hudson of the Wyoming State Fire Marshalls Office to get these important safety devices installed. 

At no cost, oxygen firebreaks are available to anyone who is on oxygen. Please call the Senior Center at (307) 754-4223 for more information and to schedule your install.
