Preventing Kitchen Fires This Fall
The first full week of October is Fire Prevention Week and you and your loved ones must be aware of the ways to prevent house fires as colder temperatures move in. People will be cooking more during the fall and winter seasons which, unfortunately, may lead to kitchen fires.
Fires can quickly spread to all corners of the home within a matter of minutes causing the entire structure to become layered with soot as smoke moves through the hallways. Having a plan in place to exit your home and dial 911 is important as well as a pursuing method of preventing house fires in the first place.
A few quick tips on ways to prevent home fires.
- Never leave your stove range or oven unattended.
- Put a lit on cooking when not actively stirring or pouring ingredients in.
- Don’t attempt to cook while intoxicated.
