Fire Safety Tip

First time cooking?  Having a small problem?  A cookie sheet or pot lid is a great tool to smother a fire on the stove.  Carefully slide the lid/cookie sheet onto the pot and turn off the heat.  Make sure to leave the lid in place until the pot has cooled and the fire is out to avoid re-ignition.  Fire extinguishers are also a great choice.  If you live in residence there will be one in your suite or in close proximity to the cooking area.  If you live at home or in an apartment you can purchase a small extinguisher from a local hardware store.  Be sure to stand back at least a few feet when using a fire extinguisher to avoid splashing cooking grease onto yourself and other surfaces. Happy Cooking!
