    • Keep cooking areas clear of clutter, especially those materials which can ignite -- such as oven mitts, dish towels, wooden utensils, and food packaging
    • Always keep a lid close by in case a grease fire starts when frying, so that you can slide the lid over the pan and smother the flame
    • Do not wear loose fitting clothing while cooking and do not cook if you are drowsy
    • Test your smoke alarms regularly so that if a fire starts, everyone recognizes the sound and knows to get out and stay out!
    • And more!
