Kitchen Safety - Put a lid on it!

Keep Your Kitchen Fire Safe - Stand By Your Pan!


Cooking fires can quickly get out of control! Never leave cooking unattended - stand by your pan!  If a small grease fire occurs, use the "Put A Lid On It" technique. Smother the flames by sliding a cover or larger pan over the fire and turn off the burner; never pour water on a grease fire or move the burning pan. If the fire does not go out instantly, leave the house and call the fire department. 

Fire Escape Plan

Fire Escape Planning

Fire can spread rapidly through your home, leaving you as little as two minutes to escape safely once the alarm sounds. Pull together everyone in your household and make a plan. Walk through your home and inspect all possible exits and escape routes.  Households with children should consider drawing a floor plan of your home, marking two ways out of each room, including windows and doors.  To learn more, click here.

CO Poisoning

Do You Smell Something?

NO you don't! Too many people die each year from this invisible, odorless killer. Accidental CO poisoning is easily prevented.  If you don't have a battery-powered or battery back-up CO detector in your home, install one as soon as possible and check it every six months.
