Stay safe in the kitchen
I’m Kevin Jones, Head of Community Safety for North Wales Fire and Rescue Service.
My role is all about making our communities as safe as possible – and I’d like to start 2022 by highlighting the importance of cooking safety and the dangers of kitchen fires.
There are more fires in the kitchen than in any other room in the home – and it only takes one small distraction for a fire to start.
Please never leave cooking unattended for any length of time and don’t drink or cook – and please help us get these messages through to any elderly or vulnerable family, friends or neighbours you may have.
Smoke alarms save lives - the early warning provided by a smoke alarm can provide vital minutes to help you escape unharmed.
I’d ask everyone to consider elderly or vulnerable family and neighbours, and ensure they are safe too.
