U.S. Fire Damages
In 2019, United States fires accounted for $14.8 billion in direct dollars loss, 16,000 injuries, and 3,704 deaths.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the U.S. Fire Administration (USFA), “U.S. fire statistics”, reported 1,291,500 fires for that same year. Overall, the USFA estimated 354,000 incidents were residential building fires and 110,000 were nonresidential building fires.
While Vulcan Spring cannot directly prevent the initial start of a fire, we create custom springs that support the life-sustaining functionality of industrial HVAC systems and fire dampers. In turn, the dampers our spring support provide ventilation and prevent the spread of both smoke and fire.
Beyond the Spring ™
Here at Vulcan, we see beyond the capabilities of our springs. We see the applications they are integral to.
We see fire dampers in a hospital, keeping nurses and their patients safe in a rapid unit. In these high-stress environments and positions, a fire should be the last thing that is on a healthcare worker’s mind.
We see a young university student cooking their first meal away from home on campus. They should be in a secure, fire-safe environment. They should be more concerned with academics than the consequences of burning their noodles.
We see an entrepreneur in a commercial office, not worrying about being on a nineteenth-floor skyscraper. Instead, they are thinking about the next groundbreaking idea.

Whatever the building type, Vulcan recognizes that the final applications our springs fit into –are lifesaving.
