Fire Prevention Week

October 4th to 10th is Fire Prevention Week and Yellowhead County’s Fire Services wants to make sure you’re serving up fire safety in the kitchen.

Did you know?
Unattended cooking is the leading cause of fires in the kitchen. And cooking is the #1 cause of fire injuries in the home.

Yellowhead County Fire Department would like to remind everyone about the simple actions you can take to keep you and your family safe.

Remember to stay in the kitchen when you’re frying and grilling food. • Set a reminder timer, especially if you’re on your phone • And alw1ays keep a lid nearby to smother small grease fires.
