Fire Prevention Week
Cooking is the leading cause of home fires and home fire
injuries. With more of us working and cooking at home, we
need to be extra cautious to prevent house fires. Here are
some ways you can serve up safety in the kitchen
• Stay in the kitchen when you are cooking.
• Keep a lid nearby when cooking to smother
small grease fires.
• Keep flammables away from your stove top.
• Install smoke alarms in every bedroom and on
every level of the home.
• Make a home escape plan and make sure
everyone in your family knows it by heart.
