TAKE the time to teach children about fire safety this summer.
Dorset Fire and rescue service is encouraging mums and dads to teach their children how to be safe in the kitchen while learning culinary skills.
As part of the Fire Kills campaign the service are encouraging people to be aware of the dangers of a hot hob.
Sarah Moore, Home Safety Manager said: “From bake-offs to barbeques, there are lots of creative ways to teach kids about cooking fire safety this summer.
“And, it’s absolutely vital that they know what to do if the worst should happen.
“So alongside the melting, mixing and making, why not take the chance to pass on your fire safety knowhow? Test your smoke alarm as part of the activity. And remember, never leave a child alone with a hot hob, and help keep them safe by moving matches and saucepan handles out of their reach.”
If a pan catches fire, don’t take any risks – Get Out, Stay Out, and Call 999.
