Description

Full of information about kitchen fire safety, this bold presentation display is perfect for audiences large or small. Over one-third of residential fires start in the kitchen, making prevention efforts that much more important.

The display begins by noting that there are four types of burns that can occur in the kitchen: scald, contact, flame, and electrical. Burns can be cooled by placing them under slow running cool water for at least 10 minutes. Items like ice or butter should not be used on burns. Individuals with second or third degree burns should seek medical attention. These burns may cause blisters or they may cause skin to turn dark red or even black.

Small cooking fires can grow quickly if the proper steps are not taken. Grease or oils are common culprits in cooking fires. The only way to put out a grease fire is by depriving the fire of oxygen. Using water on this type of fire will only make the situation worse.

If a dish catches fire, cover it with a metal lid (never glass) and take the dish off the burner. Fire extinguishers are the best tool to put out a cooking fire, although a wet towel or baking soda will also work for small fires. However, do not attempt to use flour or to swat the flames with a towel. These actions may cause the fire to spread to other areas. For fires that start in the microwave, keep the door closed and unplug the unit. Fires in the oven require a similar procedure: keep the oven door closed and turn off the heating element.

Simple steps can reduce the risk of kitchen fires. When using the stovetop, keep pot handles turned away from the edge of the stove and the counters. Don’t neglect spills. Floor spills pose a slip/fall hazard, while counter spills may cause electrocution. Appliances that have damaged cords should not be used. And when opening the lids of pots or pans while cooking, do so carefully to prevent scalds.

In the event of a kitchen fire, warn everyone in the house, get out and stay out, go to your family’s Safe Meeting Place, and call 9-1-1.

About half of kitchens do not have a working smoke alarm near the room, increasing the risk that a small fire will turn into a larger one. Kitchen fires result in about $900 million of property damage each year, as well as 500 injuries, and 300 deaths.

The display concludes by noting that with the proper precautions, kitchen fires are 100% preventable.
