Most kitchen fires occur when people are distracted or leave things unattended.

  • Never use a toaster under a shelf or kitchen cupboard - pull it out from under the cupboard when in use.
  • Don't hang wet or damp tea towels on the cooker to dry.
  • Dirty grill pans and ovens cause fires. Help keep them clean.
  • When using a microwave read the cooking instructions carefully, ensure you don't put in any metal objects.
  • Kettles can cause serious burns from the steam, make sure you don't lean over the kettle when it'.s boiling.
