This year, Fire Prevention Week runs from October 8-14, 2023. This year’s theme is: “Cooking safety starts with YOU! Pay attention to Fire Prevention™”
Last year BC kitchens accounted for just under one-quarter of all fire locations, causing twenty-two percent of injuries and four deaths. We must take this threat seriously. Join us in making our community safer this year by prioritizing fire prevention in the kitchen and beyond.
The BC Professional Fire Fighters’ Burn Fund has created videos and infographics to help promote safer kitchens. Below is our public safety announcement video highlighting the importance of cooking safety.
Let’s cook up safely together! Share our cooking safety PSA video and be a part of preventing kitchen accidents. Your actions can save lives.
