Fire Prevention Week

This year’s Fire Prevention Week campaign, “Cooking safety starts with YOU!” works to educate everyone about simple, yet important actions they can take to keep themselves and those around them safe from home fires.

Cooking Safety Tips

    • Turn pot handles toward the back of the stove. Accidental bumping or pulling on overhanging pot handles can cause food or liquids spill and burn anyone nearby.
    • Watch what you heat. Set a timer to remind yourself that you are cooking.
    • Keep a “kid-free zone” of at least three feet around the stove and areas where hot food or drinks are prepared or carried.
