One of the most frequent causes of household fire and smoke damage is due to cooking. Because of this, it is important to practice safe cooking habits every time you cook! Below we have some helpful hints.
Protect Children from Scalds and Burns-Young children are at a high risk of being burned by hot food and liquids. Keep children away from cooking areas by enforcing a "kid-free zone" of 3 feet around the stove
Watch What You're Cooking-The leading cause of fires in the kitchen is unattended cooking. Stay in the kitchen when you are frying, grilling, or cooking food on the stove top.
Keep Things That Can Catch Fire and Heat Sources Apart-Keep anything that can catch fire-potholders, oven mitts, wooden utensils, paper or plastic bags away from any heat source.
Know Where Your Fire Extinguisher Is-Always have a fire extinguisher in the kitchen and know how to use it!
