Fire Safety and the Cooking appliances
Government statistics show that the largest number of reported fires caused by accident in the home, almost 11,500 each year, are caused by people misusing electrical cooking appliances, including microwaves.
So you need to take special care in your use / handling of the electrical appliances in your kitchen in order to reduce the chance of a fire being caused by these.
Simple tips for your fire safety:
Don't let leads from other appliances, like kettles or toasters, trail across the cooker;
Never dry towels on, or near, the cooker;
Don't let fat and grease build up on the cooker, especially in the grill pan where it can easily catch fire;
Please make sure that you turn the cooker off when you have finished using it.
Fire Safety and the Smoke Alarms
If a fire starts in your home, a smoke alarm will give you valuable time. You are more than twice as likely to die in a house fire if you do not have a working smoke alarm. Modern alarms are neat and tidy, cost less than ever, and are easy to fit. In certain circumstances, your local fire and rescue service may install one for you, for free as part of a free home fire risk check.
