Kitchen Fire Safety Tips:
Kitchen fire safety starts with the cook! Wear short or tight-fitting sleeves when cooking. Never leave cooking unattended; but if you must leave the kitchen for a moment, turn the surface burners off. Keep small appliances unplugged when not in use, and keep them clean and dry. If a small grease fire occurs, use the "Put A Lid On It" technique. Smother the flames by sliding a cover or larger pan over the fire while turning off the burner. Never pour water on a cooking oil fire or move the burning pan! If the fire does not instantly go out, leave the house and call the fire department.
