Cooking Safety Tips

The Novato Fire District would like to remind you that cooking fires are the #1 cause of home fires and home fire injuries. During this holiday season, remember these cooking facts & safety tips. 

  • Unattended cooking is by far the leading contributing factor in these fires. 
  • Frying poses the greatest risk of fires. 
  • Never throw water on a grease fire--it will dramatically spread the fire. 
  • Always keep a lid nearby to smother a pan fire & turn off the appliance. 
  • Clean any excess grease and build-up from your oven and stove. 
  • Keep combustibles, such as potholders or paper towels away from the cooking area. 
  • Do not wear loose clothing (especially hanging sleeves) when you are cooking. 
  • Use a timer and stay close enough to hear it when it sounds. 
  • Keep children out of the immediate cooking area. 
  • Always have pot handles turned in near the counter side. 
  • Have a fire extinguisher and know how to use it. 
  • Call 911 for emergencies.

Green Tip
Are real Christmas trees good for our environment?
Yes! Christmas trees are grown on farms for the specific purpose of being harvested. For each tree that is cut, a new tree is planted. During their growth the trees clean the air by absorbing carbon dioxide and sending out fresh oxygenated air. Also, Christmas trees are 100% recyclable. They are used mostly to create garden mulch. So enjoy your real Christmas tree and feel good about contributing to a healthy environment.
