Rescue and serve up fire safety in the kitchen.

Fire Prevention Week – “Serve Up Fire Safety in the Kitchen!”

The Valley Regional Fire Authority teams up with the National Fire Protection Association® (NFPA) every October to promote Fire Prevention Week. This year’s theme is “Serve Up Fire Safety in the Kitchen!”

VRFA firefighters often respond to fires that start in the kitchen. Cooking fires can grow quickly, causing injuries and damage to homes. Many of these fires can be prevented. Every day this week we will be sharing kitchen fire and injury prevention tips on our website and social media. We encourage you to put these tips to work in your kitchen to prevent cooking fires in your home.

Check back tomorrow to learn about the leading cause of home fires and what day of the year has the most fires involving cooking equipment.
