As I recently learned during fire prevention week, home fires usually start in the kitchen. Not so surprising. My natural reaction would be to throw water on the blaze, but you probably know that makes the fire even more dangerous, especially when you consider electrical appliances and a risk for electrocution. The safest way to put out a grease or electrical fire is with a fire extinguisher or a box of baking soda. Make sure you’ve got them close by and share these fire safety tips with your kids before you carefully cook dinner tonight. The tips include helpful hints on installing fire alarms and planning escape routes should flames overwhelm your baking soda. Review this safety check list to make sure your house and your family are prepared. And yes, there will be a quiz.
