Safety Information for High-Risk Environments
No one likes to think about the possibility of a fire in their home, but kitchen fires are more common than you might think. In fact, cooking is the leading cause of home fires and home fire injuries in the United States. Luckily, there are some simple steps you can take to help prevent a kitchen fire from starting.
One of the most important things you can do is to keep an eye on what you’re cooking. Don’t leave food unattended on the stovetop, and be sure to stay in the kitchen while you’re cooking. If you’re using the oven, set a timer to remind yourself to check on food regularly. It’s also important to keep your kitchen clean. Grease and food build-up can easily catch fire, so be sure to wipe down surfaces and clean up spills as soon as they happen. Finally, make sure you have a working smoke alarm in your kitchen, and test it regularly to ensure it’s in good condition. By following these simple tips, you can help prevent a kitchen fire from happening in your home.
