Our lifestyle requires one to be super diligent about fire safety,  not just average.
Unfortunately certain lifestyles violate common sense safety practices. These practices have resulted in deaths. How do you change that?

Your sarcasm proves my point.

Most/many wouldn't even realize that certain practices are against basic fire safety norms.

Our lifestyle requires one to be super diligent about fire safety,  not just average. And that leaves a lot more room for error,  sadly.
Exactly. This kind of attitude says "ואס וייסט א א"י" so we just will pretend that they are stupid and everything they say about safety goes out the window.We should be able to take experts recommendations seriously and put proper safeguards in place even if we can't keep to every thing they say.

Take a step back and see what's actually required and what's not. Eliminate the extras, and keep the actual requirements and be diligent.

Example,  perhaps shabbos candles don't need to burn 3-4+ hours, especially on a late yom tov second day.

as @yitzgar mentioned, when they give advice while being totally disconnected from understanding our lifestyle is not very helpful, thanks.
they can also recommend turning of the gas and put out the candles before going to sleep, easy

That is not what I was trying to say. I was saying that we should take their expertise and knowledge seriously and therefore even if we can't abide exactly by their recommendations, figure out how to put more safeguards in place that we are able to do. Don't just dismiss them. Leitzanus achas....

What does that mean?

you said,

so I gave an idea of how to avoid covid, which people were not careful with and resulted in deaths. (it was a joke)

Do we actually know that the rate of structural fires is on the rise or is this anecdotal?

Definitely agree that better fire safety precautions should be in place, especially around candles.

DB Electronic had candles?

The fire today on ridge was from candles?

what made me start this thread is the fact that the house that burned down on Shabbos Pesach in Monsey was noticed when only the table was engulfed in flames, but they didn't have the tools to put it out, now imagine if they would.

would a fire extingusher help? I don't know, but time plays a role

Reading comprehension much? Go ahead, ignore fire safety precautions around candles.

And while you're here, please show the stats that prove the rate of structural fires is increasing.

No one said otherwise. Reading comprehension is a great drug.

Better access to these stories and growing communities would also contribute to this effect. Not saying itís not increasing, but was curious if the title was actually proven true.
