Cooking
Did you know?

  • The leading cause of fires in the kitchen is unattended cooking.
  • Most cooking fires in the home involve the stove top.
  • Frying poses the greatest risk of fire.
  • By following a few safety tips you can prevent these fires.

Take these steps to keep your family safe.

  • Stand by your pan: If you leave the kitchen, turn the burner off
  • Keep anything that can catch on fire away from the stove top.  Oven mitts, wooden utensils, food packaging, towels, and curtains should be kept clear from the stove.
  • Watch what you are cooking: Fires start when the heat is too high.  If you see smoke or the grease starts to boil, turn the burner off.
  • Turn pot handles toward the back of the stove: Then no one can bump them or pull them over.
  • Keep a pan lid or baking sheet nearby: Turn off the heat and use a pan lid or baking sheet to cover the pan if it catches on fire.
  • Baking soda: Baking soda will put out a small grease fire.  DO NOT USE WATER on a grease fire.
  • Cooking and Kids: Have a "Kid-free" zone.  You should have at least 3 feet around the stove and areas where hot food is prepared and carried.
