Fire flames June is National Safety Month! Practice safety while cooking to prevent a fire from occurring.

June is National Safety Month. As a homeowner, it is important to recognize and minimize your risks when it comes to fires. Cooking is among the leading causes of home fires so you want to do all you can to minimize the risks in your home. Here are some tips to consider adding into your cooking routine.

  • Use extra caution or avoid using the stove or oven if you are overly tired or if you have consumed a few alcoholic beverages.
  • Do not leave the kitchen unattended while you are cooking. It only takes a few seconds for a spark to turn into flames that can quickly spread.
  • While using the oven, check the food frequently as grease or oil splatters from the food can lead to a grease fire in your oven.
  • Keep easily flammable items away from the hot oven and stovetop such as towels, dish cloths and pot holders.

As a homeowner, you want to do your absolute best to minimize the risks when it comes to home fires because what can start as a small grease fire can quickly spread and destroy your home. According to the National Safety Council, “over the past several decades, deaths from home fires in the U.S have steadily gone down – from 5,200 in 1980 to 2,820 in 2018.” Although this is great news, one death is still too many so do all you can to practice safety when it comes to cooking.
