Simple Tips for Cooking Fire Prevention in Your Milwaukee Area Home
Cooking is the leading cause of home fires and fire related injury. Here are a few steps from FEMA and the US Fire Administration to help keep your family safe while cooking:
Stand by your pan
If you leave the kitchen, turn the burner off
Watch what you are cooking
Fires start when the heat is too high. If there are signs of smoke or boiling grease, turn off the burner
Turn pot handles toward the back of the stove
This way, no one can bump them or pull them over accidentally
Keep a pan lid or baking sheet nearby
Use it to cover the pan if it catches on fire. This should help smother the fire.
