More than 50% of the fires that we attend are caused by cooking. Distraction is the main cause of these fires, with pans and grills left to set alight because they’ve not been looked after properly. As part of our cooking safety campaign we’re asking each and every one of you to ‘Look when you cook’ and ‘Don’t make fast food your last food’.
Family life is always busy, especially with young children. It’s really important that when preparing for meal times that we pay close attention to the food we are cooking and ‘look when we cook’ otherwise the consequences could be fatal.
A smoke alarm is less likely to wake you up when you’ve fallen asleep drunk. Next time you have a drink don’t head for the frying pan, head for take away! Have fast food, not your last food!
