If you’re playing with fire, then first you better do more than just play at fire safety. If you’re cooking for a family then it’s a safe bet it sometimes feels like you’re producing, directing, and starring your own three-part hunger games series that plays back, in its entirety, on a daily loop. Cooking may be an art form, and eating can be a great source of pleasure, but there can also be a fair amount of drudgery in the day-to-day routine of basic nourishment. And unfortunately, drudgery welcomes distraction. But the most surefire way for your daily hunger games to segue into an unfortunate sequel that would be aptly memorialized under the caption, catching fire, is to leave cooking on the stove and unattended. According to the U.S. Fire Administration, nearly half of all house fires start in the kitchen, and the vast majority of those flare-ups result from unattended cooking. So when considering ways to cook up your own kitchen fire safety plan, the ideal recipe begins with an attentive, and alert cook, first and foremost. Beyond that, some of the more obvious precautions for kitchen fire safety are.
From Rome to New York, fire has been one of the most disastrous calamities to effect our world. Fire is a tool, it’s a weapon, and catastrophe all rolled into one. It somehow manages to find a place for itself at the table of every major catastrophic event, including ones that involve a lot of water, like tsunamis.
Fires are deadly and almost impossible to contain. Home fires cause more than $6 billion in damages a year. In 2012 alone, forest fires claimed 9.33 million acres of land, and cost nearly $2 billion to suppress.
Every five seconds someone is severely burned. Each year, 265,000 people are estimated to die from burn injuries, and chances are, that half or more of your own scars came from burns. It’s no wonder that industries that rely heavily on using fire as a tool have developed fire resistant clothing (FR clothing) to keep workers safe from what would otherwise be inevitable.
