Things you should and shouldn't do
By Diana Kohnle
(HealthDay News) -- There are a few things you should keep in mind any time you are using the kitchen stove.
The American Red Cross suggests these fire safety guidelines:
- Never leave food cooking on the stove unattended. Turn the stove off if you must leave the room. Check on food often while cooking, and set a timer to remind you.
- Don't wear clothing with long or loose sleeves.
- Keep oven mitts, towels and other flammable objects away from the stove.
- Make sure children stay at least three feet from the stove.
- Keep kitchen surfaces clean, and get rid of any grease buildup immediately.
- Keep a fire extinguisher in your kitchen and install a smoke alarm in the room.
- Before going to bed or leaving the home, check the kitchen to make sure all appliances are turned off.
