You will hear screams and yells this Sunday, hopefully all aimed at the television. People will be cheering for the Seahawks or the Patriots. And according to Rita Hodges, County Extension Agent – Family and Consumer Sciences in Texas, Super bowl Sunday is the second most food consumed day.
That means there will be a lot of barbecuing, baking, frying, and eating. There will be wings, dips, and chips galore; but, with more food, comes more opportunity for people to “fumble” at home while cooking. The NFPA has these basic cooking fire safety tips:
- Keep an eye on what you fry
- Be alert when cooking
- Keep things that can catch fire away from cooking area
- Keep handles pointed away from where you walk
More tips can be found on NFPA’s cooking fire safety central webpage. Be safe and may the best team win!
