kitchen fire safety

Kitchen fires happen, so having a fire extinguisher specifically rated for kitchen fires on hand could keep a small fire from becoming a bigger blaze.

If it’s a frying pan fire, don’t move the pan or try to douse the flames with water – this could spread the fire. Turn off the heat and put a metal lid on the pan to smother the fire. Baking soda will extinguish a grease fire, but only if it’s small.

Fire extinguishers only work for a few seconds, so if the fire’s not out in that time, leave the area, alert the others, and call the fire department.

Some extinguishers are designed to last a decade, many inexpensive models aren’t. Don’t ignore your extinguishers – give them a look-over every once in a while to check expiry dates or maintenance tags.
