Victoria Fire Serves Up ‘Fire Safety in the Kitchen’
Fire Prevention Week is coming up fast and our Victoria Fire Departments are here to offer their support!
The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and State Farm Agents Diana Escalante and Eli Sauseda are partnering with Victoria Fire Department for the annual public awareness campaign that promotes home fire safety. It's something that goes back over 90 years with the National Fire Protection Association.
Fire Prevention Week is coming up the week of October 4th through the 10th. State Farm Agents will be delivering toolkits to 175 fire departments across Texas, including Victoria. These kits include brochures, magnets, posters, and lots of resources to help us all share this important safety information in the Crossroads. These items will be shared with schools and at community events this fall.
- Keep a close eye on what you’re cooking; never leave cooking unattended
- Keep anything that can catch fire — oven mitts, wooden utensils, food packaging, towels or curtains — at least three feet away from your stovetop.
- Be on alert. If you are sleepy or have consumed alcohol, don’t use the stove or stovetop.
