Avoiding Kitchen Fires During the Pandemic
The global pandemic has changed all of our lives in one way or another. For many people, one of the biggest changes is not being able to go to restaurants. Because of this, people are cooking at home more, which has caused an increase in residential kitchen fires. According to https://www.newschannel5.com/ , “During the COVID-19 pandemic, The Red Cross suggests revisiting your exit plan in the case of a fire to lessen your risk of being seriously injured or killed. We're believing that because more people are at home, we're seeing an increase," said Crystal Fisher of the Red Cross. To avoid having a home fire, there are a few things you can do to keep your home and family safe. 1.) Make sure your smoke alarms are working and are up to date. 2.) Review your exit plan with your family in case of a fire. 3.) Use timers when cooking so your food doesn’t overcook and burn. 4.) Keep any flammable substances away from the stove area. If all else fails and you do end up having a kitchen fire, call 911 right away! Once the fire department puts out the fire, give us a call! We’ll be there to give you peace of mind, and restore the fire damage done to your home or business.
