Fire Prevention Week

Fire Prevention Week

Fire Prevention Week runs October 6 – 12, 2013. This year’s theme is “Prevent Kitchen Fires and Get Cooking with Fire Safety!

Cooking is the #1 cause of residential fires in Ontario.

Many fire injuries and deaths are caused by:

• Unattended cooking and distractions

• Loose clothing and articles near the stove

• Children playing near the stove

• Attempting to extinguish a grease fire with water

• Attempting to cook while under the influence of alcohol.

Always make sure to:

• Stay in the kitchen and pay attention when cooking!

• Drink responsibly when cooking.

• If a fire occurs, get out immediately and call 911

As a fun way to learn all about kitchen fire safety and preventing kitchen fires, the NFPA developed a short trivia quiz for our website. with this trivia quiz.
