The Latest in Kitchen Fire Prevention. What You Need to Know.
More fires start in the kitchen than in any other room. Those fires can be
expensive; since even a minor incident, with no injuries, can result in
significant damage. That’s why it’s important to keep up with the latest in fire
prevention.
The most recent research tells us:
• Never leave cooking food unattended. Doing so is the number one
cause of kitchen fires.
• Make sure cooking appliances, especially deep fryers, are safety
certified by the appropriate government agency.
• When using oil in a frying pan, always heat slowly at no more than a
medium heat setting.
• Always turn off stove burners and other cooking appliances
immediately after cooking.
• Never attempt to put out a grease fire with water. Use baking soda or
a fire extinguisher.
• Never remove or cover up a smoke detector due to nuisance alarms.
The one alarm that isn’t a nuisance may save your life.
Finally, experts say that if you can’t put out a fire immediately, get everyone
out of the home and call emergency services.
