NFPA has created a new cooking safety infographic for you to use on your website, in blogs and newsletters, and on your Facebook and Twitter platforms. The graphic speaks to an important message when it comes to cooking at home: Install smoke alarms at least 10 feet away from cooking appliances. This includes built-in microwaves, stoves and ranges.
Just download the graphic and place it wherever you want to use it. And don't forget to share it with your friends and family. More information about cooking safety can be found on NFPA's cooking safety web pages.
For additional resources and safety tips regarding smoke alarms, visit NFPA's Smoke Alarm Central web page where you'll find reports, videos, tip sheets and more.
It also just so happens that this year's Fire Prevention Week (FPW) theme is: Working Smoke Alarms Save Lives: Test Yours Every Month. Learn more about how smoke alarms can help keep you and your family safer from fire, including using this 10' rule when it comes to your appliances in the kitchen. Check out our FPW web page for great resources like videos, worksheets, and artwork to promote your safety campaign.
And don't forget to share your stories with us. We'd love to hear from you!
