Never Walk Away from Your STOVE!
In these challenging times it is easy to get sidetracked.
It happens, especially now…… doing several things at once, spring cleaning, while you have soup on the stove. So you leave the stove, just for a quick minute. Only it’s just never as quick as you anticipate. Meanwhile back in the kitchen….a fire has erupted. It can happen so quickly.
Good Rule: Never leave the stove or turn your back for any period of time.
1) Evaluate – call 911 if it is out of control while gathering family and get to safety
2) Put a metal lid on it
3) Turn off the heat
4) Dump baking soda
5) Chemical fire extinguisher is best as a last resort or if the above options are not available
6) Stop. Let the area sit, cool down, before you address the damage.
NO, NO, NO
1) Do not throw water
2) Do not use a hand towel
