How to prevent a Cooking Fire in the Kitchen:

To extinguish a kitchen cooking fire, follow these procedures:

  1. Slide a pan lid over flames to smother a grease or oil fire, then turn off the heat source and leave the lid in place until the pan cools
  2. Make sure a dry chemical fire extinguisher is located near to the cooking area. Go to the fire extinguisher (link) page for operation (P.A.S.S. Procedures)
  3. Never use water or flour on grease fires
  4. If you have a fire in the oven, leave the door closed and shut off the heat to smother the fire
