Fire Prevention Week 2020 is Themed for Kitchen Fire Safety
Fire Prevention Week 2020 in United States will begin on Sunday, October 4th and end on Saturday, October 10th. This year’s theme is all about fire safety in the kitchen. Since we are all home more in 2020, we are home cooking more. In order to reduce the amount of kitchen fires in 2020, the National Fire Protection Association has named this year’s fire prevention week campaign, “Serve Up Fire Safety in the Kitchen!TM”

Cooking is the #1 cause of home fires and home fire injuries. Unattended cooking is the leading cause of fires in the kitchen.
3 Safety tips from the NFPA regarding kitchen fires:
- Never leave the kitchen when you are frying, boiling, or cooking food.
- Never leave kitchen towels, oven mitts, or flammable items on top of or near the stove.
- Kitchen fires spread quickly. If you do have a cooking fire in the kitchen, get out immediately.
