Kitchen Tips For National Home Fire Safety Week - VOCM

November 23rd, 2017

November 24th to 30th is National Home Fire Safety Week and the Canada Safety Council is reminding all Canadians to be extremely careful in the kitchen.

Cooking is the lead cause of home fires in Canada, and the holiday season tends to bring a significant amount more of cooking and general oven use.

The safety council stresses to never leave food unattended on the stove and says cooking requires your full attention, because a fire can be sparked very quickly and spread even quicker.

Should a fire occur, they pass along tips such as to never swat at or blown on a fire and if you ever feel endangered or unable to control the fire, call the fire department and evacuate the house.
