BRF Fire Department Reminds "Prevent Kitchen Fires"

Saturday, October 5th, 2013 -- 7:27 AM

The Black River Falls Fire Department reminds all area residents to 'Prevent Kitchen Fires?

It's time for Fire Prevention Week, and from October 6-12 Black River Falls Fire Department is joining forces with the nonprofit National Fire Protection Association to remind local residents to ?Prevent Kitchen Fires.'

During this year's fire safety campaign, fire departments will be spreading the word about the dangers of kitchen fires--most of which result from unattended cooking, and teaching local residents how to prevent kitchen fires from starting in the first place.

According to the latest NFPA research, cooking is the leading cause of home fires. Two of every five home fires begin in the kitchen, more than any other place in the home. Cooking fires are also the leading cause of home fire-related injuries.

Fire Prevention Week is actively supported by fire departments across the country. Fire Prevention Week is the longest running public health and safety observance on record.
