  • Teach children to tell adults if they find matches or a lighter.
  • Make and practice a home escape plan.

  • Turn pot handles to the back of the stove when cooking.
  • Do not place hot liquids near the edges of tables or counters.
  • Have children play away from the kitchen and the outdoor grill.
