Kitchen Safety

  • Stay in the kitchen while you are frying, grilling, boiling or broiling food
  • Never leave your cooking unattended
  • Keep young children and pets away from the stove
  • Examine toasters, coffee makers and other cooking devices for signs of cracking, fraying or wear on cords and plugs
  • Always check and make sure that all burners, ovens and small appliances are turned off before leaving the house or going to bed
  • Unplug kettles and other appliances when not in use.
  • Keep anything that can catch fire – curtains, towels, oven mitts, wooden utensils, away from the stove

Home Escape Plans

  • Make a home escape plan. Draw a map of your home showing all doors and windows. Discuss the plan with everyone in your home
  • Know at least two ways out of every room, if possible. Make sure all doors and windows leading outside open easily
