Holiday Cooking Safety_100x100

Murfreesboro’s Fire and Rescue wants you to enjoy the holiday season! Unattended cooking is the leading cause of fires in the home. Holiday Cooking Safety_225x225Follow these safety tips to help prevent these fires:

•    If you are sleepy or have consumed alcohol don’t use the stove or stovetop. 

•    When you are simmering, baking, or roasting food, check it regularly.

•    Remain in the home while food is cooking, and use a timer to remind you that you are cooking. 

•    Keep anything that can catch fire — oven mitts, wooden utensils, food packaging, towels or curtains — away from your stovetop.

•    Keep a lid nearby when you’re cooking to smother small grease fires.

•    Smother the fire by sliding the lid over the pan, and turn off the stovetop.

•    Leave the pan covered until it is completely cooled.
