NFPA’s theme this year is SERVE UP FIRE SAFETY IN THE KITCHEN! This theme is aimed at "educating everyone about the simple but important actions they can take to keep themselves and those around them, safe in the kitchen".
WHY COOKING SAFETY MATTERS
- Cooking is the #1 cause of home fires and home fire injuries.
- Unattended cooking is the leading cause of fires in the kitchen.
- Scald burns are the second leading cause of all burn injuries. Hot liquids from coffee and even microwaved soup can cause devastating injuries.
