Serve Up Fire Safety In The Kitchen

October 4–10 is a busy week! Not only is it National 4-H Week, but it’s also Fire Prevention Week!

Asheboro Fire Department teamed up with us to create Fire Prevention videos. These videos will cover this year’s National Fire Prevention Association theme, “Cooking up Fire Safety in the Kitchen.” This is the nation’s leading cause of fires and fire injury in the home.

Stay tuned to our Facebook pages (both Randolph County 4-H and Asheboro Fire Department) to see the Fire Prevention Video of the Day! We will cover the following topics: Home Emergency Plans, Cooking Up Fire Safety In The Kitchen, Kitchen Safety/Safe Zones, Microwave Safety, Smoke Alarm Safety, Carbon Monoxide, & Heater Safety.
