Fire Safety Tips For The Kitchen

  • Use a lid to cover a pan or grease fire and turn off the heat. Also, baking soda works.
  • Don’t lift a burning pot.
  • Don’t use a fire extinguisher or water on a grease fire.
  • Never leave food, grease, or cooking oils unattended on the top of the burner.
  • Wear short or tightly-fitting sleeves while cooking.
  • To avoid spills, keep the pot handles turned inward.
  • Establish a child-free zone of three feet around the stove. Also, keep pets away.
  • Keep burners away from flammable objects like potholders, towels, and paper or plastic bags.
  • Never put metal in a microwave. A fire can be caused by utensils, aluminum foil, or twist-tie wraps.
  • Caution should be used for microwaved food and liquid. They can get quite hot.
  • When not in use, unplug appliances such as toasters and coffee makers.
  • Don’t ever use the oven as storage.
