As you are drifting off to sleep every night, fire safety is probably the furthest How SAFE is your mattress?thing from your mind. Approximately 360 people die each year from mattress fires according to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission. Bearing this in mind, the statistics show you may want to reconsider your sleeping arrangements and re-visit your insurance policies.
Since July 2007, mattress sets are required to meet federal safety standard for open-flame fire resistance that could save your life and your loved ones. Protection from cigarette ignition has been in place for over 30 years. The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) rules give you and your family more time to escape before the fire gets out of control. Many of the mattress fires are started by children playing with open flames such as candles, lighters or matches.
Recognized as a leading cause of death for children, mattress fires can be caused by any number of things so it is necessary to take strict safety precautions:

Don't smoke in bed, better yet, stop smoking
Be careful where you place candles
Blow out all candles before going to sleep
Don't allow children to play with candles, matches or lighters

Change the batteries in smoke alarms at least once a year
