Are You Cooking This Holiday? Be Prepared With Fire Safety Tips

12/5/2022 (Permalink)

*Keep an eye on your cooking and stay in the kitchen. Unattended cooking is the leading cause of cooking fires.

*Wear short or close-fitting sleeves. Loose clothing can catch fire.

*Watch children closely. When old enough, teach children to cook safely.

*Clean cooking surfaces to prevent food and grease build-up.

*Keep curtains, towels and pot holders away from hot surfaces and store solvents and flammable cleaners away from heat sources. Never keep gasoline in the house.

*Turn pan handles inward to prevent food spills.

*If you have to leave the kitchen, even for a second, turn off the stove.

*Use a timer so you’ll remember that the stove or oven is on.

*Keep the kids away from the cooking area. Enforce a “kid-free zone” and make them stay at least three feet away from the stove.

*Consider purchasing a fire extinguisher to keep in your kitchen. Contact your local fire department to take training on the proper use of extinguishers.
