Are you ready for some football?! With a side of fire awareness?!

Steelers or Packers? Who’s going to win?! We don’t know! But since you’re probably firing up the grill or fryer in anticipation, we thought it was a good time to refresh everyone on fire awareness with some tips!
·         Stay in the kitchen when frying, grilling or broiling food
o   If you leave the kitchen for even a short period of time, turn off the stove. 
·         Stay in the home while simmering, baking, roasting or boiling food
o   Check it regularly and use a timer to remind you that food is cooking
·         Keep anything that can catch fire away from the stove
o   Pot holders, towels, plastic, clothing, etc
·         Keep pets off cooking surfaces and countertops to prevent them from knocking things onto the burner
·         Never use a generator, grill, camp stove or other gasoline, propane, natural gas or charcoal-burning devices inside a home, garage, basement, crawlspace or any partially enclosed area
·         If a fire occurs in your home, GET OUT, STAY OUT and CALL for help
·         Install smoke alarms on every level of your home, inside bedrooms and outside sleeping areas
o   Test them every month and replace the batteries at least once a year
