Home Fire Safety Keep your home and family safe by practicing fire safety. Unattended cooking is the leading cause of all home fires, followed by heating equipment, and an electrical malfunction.

Cooking Fires 
  • Stay in the kitchen when frying, grilling or broiling food. Never leave food unattended!
  • Use a timer to remind yourself that you are cooking.
  • Keep the stovetop, burners and oven clean from grease and debris.
  • Never use your oven for storage.
  • Never pour water on a grease fire! Cover the pan with a lid and turn off the stove.
Heating Equipment 
  • Keep anything that can burn at least three feet from all heat sources.
  • Hire a professional to clean, inspect and service your home’s heating equipment annually.
  • Purchase space heaters that have an automatic shut off and plug them directly into an outlet.
  • Turn off space heaters before leaving the room or going to sleep.
Electrical Equipment 
  • Hire a qualified electrician to make any changes in your home.
  • Do not overload electrical outlets and unplug small appliances when they are not in use.
  • Use surge protectors, not power strips, with electrical devices that require a lot of electricity.
