Cooking Safety Reminder
By Chief Justin Lee

-Keep an eye on what you fry. Most cooking fires start when someone is frying food.

-Watch what you are cooking. Fires start when the heat is too high. If you see any smoke or the grease starts to boil, turn the burner off.

-Make sure you are awake and alert. Alcohol and some drugs can make you sleepy.

-Wear short sleeves or roll them up so they don’t catch on fire.

-Make sure children and pets stay at least 3 feet away from a hot stove.

-Turn pot handles toward the back of the stove so no one can bump them or pull them over.

-Move things that can burn away from the stove. This includes dishtowels, bags, boxes, paper and curtain
