 We all like t think we are safe in our own homes. Kitchen fires are somedthing we don't(often enough) think about. The National Association of STATE FIRE MARSHALLS prepared this list to teach/remind us how we can remain safe:

TO PREVENT KITCHEN FIRES:

1-Keep an eye on your cooking  & stay in the kitchen; Unattended cooking is the  #1 cause of cooking fires !2-Wearshortorclosefittingsleves.Loose clothing can catch fire!3- Watch children closely. When old enough, teach children to cook  safely.4-Clean cooking surfaces to prevent food & grease buildup5-Keep curtains, towels & pot holders away from hot surfaces, and store solvents and flammable cleaners away from heat sources 6-Never keep gasoline in the house!7-Turn pan handles inward  to prevent food spills TO PUT OUT A COOKING FIRE, IN YOUR KITCHEN:1-Call the fire department, immediately.In many cases, dialing   911 will give you “emergency services”2-Slide a pan lid or cover over flames to  smother a grease or oil fire, thenturn off the heat and  leave the lid in place until the pan coolsNEVER CARRY THE  PAN OUTSIDE!!!!!!!!3-Extinguish other food fires w/ baking soda!4-NEVER use water or flour on cooking fires!5-Keep the oven door shut & turn off the heat to smother an oven or broiler fire!6-Keep a fire extinguisher in the kitchen….Make sure you have the right type & training7-Keep a working smoke detector in your home & test it monthly!

Hi Ann,thanks for the important info.You can never be too careful. when my boys were small I removed the knobs from the stove to prevent them from turning on the stove.Once they were older of course I put the knobs back on and I started them baking cookies only with supervision.When I wasn't home they could only use the microwave.

Because I'm used to knowing the rules I often forget to mention it to others. Thanks for keeping an eye on us all.

My cats can't help or protect themselves so I try hard to make certain they are as safe as possible.
