Stay in the kitchen while you are cooking.
Use a timer to remind you that you are cooking.
Turn off the stove, if you leave the kitchen for even a short period of time.
Keep anything that can catch fire away from your stove, i.e. oven mitts, wooden utensils, food packaging, towels or curtains.
NEVER throw water on a grease fire! If possible, cover the pot/pan with a lid to smother the fire and turn off the stovetop. Leave the pan covered until it is completely cooled.
For oven fires, turn off the heat and keep the door closed.
For microwave fires, leave the door closed, turn the oven off and unplug it from the wall.
If the fire does not go out, get outside and call 911.
