The fire department provides a kid-free zone at least 3 feet from the stove and hot areas to ensure safety and prevent fire incidents.

Fire Prevention Week Day 7

How can you keep kids safe in the kitchen? We recommend having a “kid-free zone” of at least three feet around the stove and areas where hot food or drink is prepared or carried. If you are cooking with older children be sure they have proper supervision and know how to stay safe in the kitchen.

This is the last day of Fire Prevention Week. We encourage you to practice the safety tips we provided every day. Please visit Home Fire Prevention for more safety information and tips to keep you and your family safe every day of the year.
