Salisbury Fire Department will join the national campaign to celebrate Fire Prevention Week, Sunday, Oct. 4 - Saturday, Oct. 10.
The theme of the 2020 Fire Prevention week campaign is: “Serve up fire safety in the kitchen.” As cooking remains the leading cause of home fires, the goal is to focus on cooking fire safety involving cooking equipment and unattended cooking.
Salisbury Fire Department truly cares about fire safety and would like to share kitchen safety tips to keep you and your family safe:
- Keep a close eye on what you’re cooking; never leave cooking unattended.
- Keep anything that can catch fire — oven mitts, wooden utensils, food packaging, towels or curtains — at least three feet away from your stovetop.
- Be on alert. If you are sleepy or have consumed alcohol, don’t use the stove or stovetop.
