Fire Prevention Week 2020

Fire Prevention Week is October 4 - 10! 

Did you know cooking is the number 1 cause of home fires and home fire injuries?

Fire Prevention Week Tips:
  • Keep kids safe from burns and scalds. Have a kid-free zone of at least 3 feet around hot things in the kitchen.
  • Keep your cooking area clutter-free. Move anything that can burn away from the stovetop. 
  • Focus on the food! Unattended cooking is the leading cause of fires in the kitchen. 
  • Be smart when cooking. Use a timer to remind you that you are cooking.
  • Put a lid on it! To extinguish a small grease fire, keep a pot lid nearby when cooking.
