Welcome to the JLS Memorial Foundation
The Jamie Lynn Sullivan Memorial Foundation is dedicated to fire prevention and saving lives through public awareness and education that promotes operable smoke detectors in every home.
On December 27, 2001, Jamie Lynn Sullivan died in a tragic house fire while sleeping over a friends house. It was just four days before her tenth birthday. The cause of the fire is unknown, however, the cause of death is smoke inhalation. The home in which she was staying did not have operable smoke detectors because all three smoke detectors were without batteries.

The Fire Marshall reported that had the smoke detectors been in working condition, he was 99.9% sure that Jamie would be alive today. This foundation was created in 2002 to help prevent other tragic incidents like Jamie's from happening again.

Working Smoke Detectors Save Lives!
The Jamie Lynn Sullivan Memorial Foundation is dedicated to fire prevention and saving lives through public awareness and education that promotes operable smoke detectors in every home.
Smoke detectors can mean the difference between life and death. The smell of smoke usually will not wake you, in fact, the gases in smoke can put you in an even deeper sleep. Smoke detectors are your first line of defense against fire and can cut the risk of dying in a home nearly in half.

Without adequate smoke detectors, smoke from a fire can and will quickly and silently kill you. Remember, it is up to you to protect yourself and your family. Be sure to have working smoke detectors on every level of your home and test them at least once a month.
Don't Let Your Dreams Go Up In Smoke

A home fire starts somewhere in this country every 82 seconds and doubles in intensity every 30 seconds. Fire injures or kills over 40,000 children each year in the United States. Each year, fire kills more Americans than all natural disasters combined. Fire is the third leading cause of accidental death in the home.

At least 80 percent of all fire deaths occur in residences. Smoke alarms either were not present or did not operate in 75% of these residences. Most fatalities from fire occur between the hours of 2 a.m. and 6 a.m. -- while most people are asleep. Smoke from a fire in the home can and will kill quickly and silently without adequate smoke alarms.
