OCTOBER IS NATIONAL FIRE PREVENTION MONTH
Cooking Safety
Unattended cooking is the leading cause of home fires/injuries. Always turn pot/skillet handles inward to prevent accidental spills. Turn off the burner if you have to leave. Don't overheat grease, leave towels or pot holders on the stove. Always have working smoke detectors and a fire extinguisher in the kitchen. Use a lid or baking soda, not water, to extinguish fires. Never carry a pot/skillet that is on fire. Extinguish oven, broiler or microwave fires by keeping the door closed and turning off the power/heat. Never fight a big or growing fire; evacuate and call 911 immediately.
