Be sure to practice fire safety tips for preventing kitchen fires this holiday season!
With the holidays here, your favorite recipes to make for family and friends come as well. While spending time with loved ones is important, it is also important to practice proper fire safety tips to prevent a kitchen fire.
* Did you know that when grease is too hot, it can catch fire? If you find yourself in this situation, place a lid over the pan immediately to cut off the oxygen levels. Always call 911 if you are in need of emergency help.
* Be alert and set kitchen timers. It is very easy to get distracted during the holidays with cooking multiple items, and interacting with family. Set timers to be sure you don't forget that something is cooking and stay near the heat source.
*Save getting in your planned outfit for later and wear clothing that is suitable for cooking in. Avoid wearing long, bagging clothing that can easily catch fire.
* Plan to have the children looked after. It's easy to get distracted with small children. Keep the children away from the heating sources to avoid accidents.
* Clean as you go to avoid items catching fire such as napkins, towels, plastic and wooden spoons.
If you find yourself in an unfortunate situation, always call 911.
