Did you know that over 60% of home fires start in the kitchen? Given the presence of flammable oils, heat sources and variety of electrical appliances - this is understandable. Yet it doesn’t mean landlords and residents can’t take several steps to enhance their level of safety in the home, especially when there are vulnerable people living there. Fire prevention methods in the kitchen can be both behavioural and technological. For instance, installing fire alarms including smoke and heat alarms, not leaving cooking unattended, and practising an escape plan are some of the procedures outlined in our Fire Safety In The Kitchen eBook. However, for tenants who are high risk or vulnerable - such as children, the elderly, disabled or those living with dementia - a higher level of fire protection may be required.
