Holiday Fire Safety
Reminders from Maple Grove’s Fire Department that it only takes a couple seconds to turn your back on the stove or oven and a cooking fire can start. Maple Grove’s Deputy Fire Chief Patrick Farrens offers timely reminders about common fire hazards, especially during the holidays. He also suggests keeping pan handles away from the reach of children and being extra careful about candles. Electrical fires also tend to go up this time of year, check for frayed wires and don’t string multiple extension cords together. You can go here for more resources about fire safety.
