Cooking Safety

According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), cooking fires are the number one cause of home fires and home injuries. The leading cause of fires in the kitchen is unattended cooking. Be on alert to stay safe. Stay in the kitchen while you are frying, boiling or broiling food.  If you are simmering, baking or roasting, check on it regularly and set a timer to remind you that you are cooking.
