Prevent kitchen fires

Luke Fire Emergency Services is teaming up with the National Fire Protection Association and United States Fire Administration to promote this year’s Fire Prevention Week. This year’s theme, “Prevent Kitchen Fires,” focuses on the importance of awareness, good working appliances and safe cooking practices.

Along with learning fire safety, family members need to know and practice the home fire escape plan at least twice a year and need to ensure smoke detectors are in proper working condition, tested monthly and replace the batteries every year.

To learn more about fire safety around the home, contact the Luke Fire Emergency Services, Fire Prevention Office at 623-856-7350.
