Always Stay in the Kitchen While Cooking!
This year, Fire Prevention Week is going to look a lot different. We are going to be taking things virtual for this important week, and even though we will not be out in the public, Brampton Fire will still be getting the message out to residents on the importance of safe cooking! Remember these simple 4 key tips:
Eliminate all distractions when cooking, this includes your cell phone or TV
If you need to leave the room when the stove is on, turn the stove off and remove the pot/pan
Never cook when sleepy or under the influence of alcohol or cannabis.
Keep anything that can catch on fire – oven mitts, wooden utensils, food packaging, paper towels – away from your stovetop.
