October 4th-10th 
Serving Up Safety in the Kitchen 

Why cooking safety matters: 
  • Cooking is the #1 cause of home fires and home fire injuries.
  • Unattended cooking is the leading cause of fires in the kitchen.
  • Scald burns are the second leading cause of all burn injuries. Hot liquids from coffee and even microwaved soup can cause devastating injuries.
