NFPA Announces Theme of Fire Prevention Week 2013: Prevent Kitchen Fires

The National Fire Protection Association(NFPA) announced the 2013 Fire Prevention Week theme: “Prevent Kitchen Fires.” NFPA selected this theme to encourage greater care when cooking and an awareness of kitchen fire dangers. As cooking is the number one cause of home fires and home fire injuries, NFPA will use the week of October 6-12 to promote safe kitchen habits with stoves, microwaves, and other appliances. Remaining attentive while cooking and managing how close children and pets are to anything hot will help keep families safe.
