Kitchen Safety

Document (1)Kitchen Safety GuidelinesTo identify and correct potential fire hazards caused by kitchen appliances, make sure to:

  • Never leave what you are cooking unattended.
  • Keep your cooking area (stove and counters) clear of anything that could catch on fire.
  • If you have pots on the stove, always make sure the handle is facing inward so they are out of reach of children and so they do not get bumped into.
  • Make sure to always have pot holders near the stove and within easy reach.
  • Take time to clean grease often from your stove top, range hood, and range hood grease filter.
  • Turn off all kitchen appliances when no one is home.
  • Get a kitchen fire extinguisher and take the time to learn how to use it.
