Stay Safe in the Kitchen


Date: 6th February, 2017

With Shrove Tuesday and the February half term rapidly approaching, many children across Dorset and Wiltshire are likely to be spending more time in the kitchen.

Whether they’re lending a helping hand or looking for a tasty snack, it’s important to make sure that they are aware of all the potential hazards in the kitchen.

Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service (DWFRS) is encouraging parents and carers to make any kitchen activities not only fun, but a real chance for them to learn about cooking safety.

Safe and Well Manager, Vikki Thomas said: “The kitchen is often seen as the heart of the house and there are many exciting lessons to learn, including the importance of fire safety and the knowledge of what to do should the worst happen.”

“So alongside the creation of a great meal, why not take the chance to pass on your fire safety knowledge including testing your smoke alarms as part of the experience.”

She concluded “The importance of never leaving a child alone in the kitchen with a hot hob, can never be understated. Help keep them safe by moving matches and saucepan handles out of their reach.”

DWFRS have these top tips for staying safe in the kitchen:
