Fire Prevention Week October 4th - 10th - Tip 3

Posted: October 8, 2020

October 4 - 10, 2020
TIP #3 

This is fire prevention week.  The theme this year is: 

"Serve up fire safety in the kitchen”            

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

Today we are offering some general safety tips:

  • Never go to sleep when you are cooking something.

  • Stay in the kitchen while you are frying, grilling, boiling, or broiling food.

  • Look while you cook!

  • 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.

  • Keep a 1 metre area free of kids and pets.

Please contact the administration office if you have any questions and someone will get in touch with you.
