About This Show
Show Info: What follows a home fire? One complete story, beyond statistics. Seven people die each day from American home fires, and another 13,000 are injured each year. However, there are ripple effects to fire that the statistics don’t explain and the nightly news rarely covers. You’ll likely see the immediate flames and destruction from a home fire on TV, but rarely do you see what happens to the many people impacted by fire one year, two years, 10 years after the incident. Who are these people and what is their new normal, now that the normal they were once used to is gone? You’re about to get a powerful look at the lingering effects of fire in America. The National Fire Protection Association presents The Survivors, a multi-part podcast series that takes an extensive look at Wyoming resident Feike van Dijk, his wife Noelle, and his family. In 2014, they experienced the unthinkable when a home fire killed two of their children.
