This week's safety tip:
Did you know, cooking fires are the No. 1 cause of fires in homes and home injuries?
As you cook up some meals in the kitchen, remember some of these safety tips from the Castle Rock Fire and Rescue Department:
Have a kid-free zone at least 3 feet from all heated cooking appliances, or where hot food may be stored
Always stay in the kitchen while cooking, so you can attend to anything that may happen
Be aware of the location of oven mitts and dish towels so they do not come near the stovetop or oven
If a fire starts on your cooktop, smother the pan or pot with a lid and turn off the burner.
If a fire starts in your oven, turn off the heat and keep the door closed
Each Tuesday, we encourage everyone to take a moment and talk about it. This week, we encourage you to talk about holiday safety. We’ll keep the topics and tips coming.
