This year’s Fire Prevention Week campaign, “Serve Up Fire Safety in the Kitchen!” works to educate everyone about simple but important actions they can take to keep themselves and those around them safe. According to the Office of the Fire Commissioner, cooking is one of the leading causes of home fires and home fire injuries in British Columbia.
White Rock Fire Rescue encourages all residents to embrace the 2020 Fire Prevention Week theme and wants to share safety tips to keep you from having a cooking fire.
