cooking safelyPeople in the United States are most likely to experience a fire in their home than anywhere else. According to the latest NFPA research, cooking is the leading cause of home fires. One out of three home fires begins in the kitchen - more than any other place in the home. This is not an issue to take lightly. Changing people's behaviors in the kitchen can help prevent these fires. NFPA is providing tools to help you launch a cooking safely campaign in your community. The resources include:
