Kitchen Fire Prevention

The kitchen is one of the most dangerous rooms in a home or restaurant. One of the many risks that people can face in this environment is the chance of a fire. Whether you are cooking in your home or managing an industrial kitchen, it is very important to make fire prevention a top priority.

A properly installed and maintained fire prevention system can protect your assets and even your life. To learn more about your fire safety options, call the Austin fire protection specialists of Ace Fire Equipment at 512-835-2020.

Safety Tips

By remaining cautious and planning ahead, you can keep your kitchen safe. A few safety tips to keep in mind include:

  • Keep the area around the stove clear. Napkins, dishtowels, boxes, and other flammable objects can ignite very quickly.
  • Make sure your kitchen has an easily accessible fire extinguisher. In an emergency, baking soda can be used to extinguish flames. Never pour water or flour on a kitchen fire, as this may only spread the flames.
  • Keep the number of people in the kitchen to a minimum. A crowded kitchen increases the risk of burns and other accidents. Children should never be in a kitchen unless they are very carefully supervised.
  • Make sure everyone who enters the kitchen is dressed appropriately. Loose-fitting clothes can easily fall into open flames or onto burners.

The best way to stay safe in a kitchen is to be prepared. If your kitchen is not properly equipped with smoke detectors and fire extinguishers, a small flame can easily create a major emergency. If you need further information about fire prevention, our Austin fire safety experts can help.
