The holiday season brings us a time of Thanksgiving. It’s a time for family to cook together and share stories around a festive holiday table. It’s also a holiday that seems to revolve around the kitchen, which is usually crowded with guests and activity.
Thanksgiving is the peak day for home cooking fires, according to the National Fire Protection Association. Odds are, someone you know will have a kitchen fire
this holiday! Stovetop cooking is the #1 cause of fires in residences and college housing. Unattended cooking is the leading cause of kitchen fires and is the most prevalent cause of nuisance alarms and fire-department responses on college campuses.
According to OSHA Guidelines, employees are required to be trained to use fire extinguishers and other safety procedures on an annual basis.
