New safety tip sheet available on hoarding and its dangers

title

By Lisa Braxton

Hoarding is a condition in which a person has persistent difficulty discarding personal possessions. The large amount of possessions fill the home and prevent the normal use of space. Hoarding also increases the risk of fire and can put both residents and first responders in danger. NFPA’s newest safety tip sheet, which is customizable, explains the fire risk, describes the impact on first responders, and offers ways to help reduce the risk of fire injury.
