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.

LiveFireSafe Safety Tip 2 100213 FINAL

Each year across the United States, college students, university students, administrators and staff experience an increasing number of fire-related emergencies, particularly involving unattended cooking. According to the National Association of State Fire Marshals (NASFM), fire fighters respond to fires in college dormitories four times a day, and numerous fires go unreported.

For the nation’s 16 million college students, school is now back in session. Students have moved back into campus residence halls, bringing all the risky behaviors they are known for, leading to a natural increase in cooking fires.

Taking a few minutes to talk about safe cooking greatly reduces the risk of cooking fires. In addition to prevention education, stop-gap engineering solutions exist for both cooking ranges and microwaves that eliminate or reduce cooking fires and nuisance alarms.

Don’t take a chance that someone else has safety covered. Talk to your students about how to be safe when cooking, and talk to your campus-area landlords and local fire-prevention office about installing engineered prevention solutions.

With prevention education and source control, you can have…Confidence in education. Confidence in equipment. Confidence in safety.
