Fire Safety Tips That Might Help To Keep Your Family Safe
Every 24 seconds, a fire department in the United States responds to a fire, this according to the National Fire Protection Association. In 2020 cooking fires accounted for many of these fires.
What you should know about home cooking safety, suggestions from (NFPA).
Be on alert. If you are sleepy or have consumed alcohol, don’t use the stove or stovetop.
Stay in the kitchen while you are frying, grilling, boiling, or broiling food.
If you are simmering, baking, or roasting food, check it regularly, remain in the kitchen while food is cooking, and use a timer to remind you that you are cooking.
Keep anything that can catch fire — oven mitts, wooden utensils, food packaging, towels or curtains — away from your stovetop.
If you have a cooking fire
Call 9-1-1 or the local emergency number after you leave.
If you try to fight the fire, be sure others are getting out and you have a clear way out.
Keep a lid nearby when you’re cooking to smother small grease fires.
Smother the fire by sliding the lid over the pan and turn off the stovetop.
Leave the pan covered until it is completely cooled.
For an oven fire, turn off the heat and keep the door closed.
