Fire Prevention Week 2020
Sunday, October 4, 2020

As Fire Prevention Week™ approaches, Laurel Fire Department reminds residents:“Serve Up Fire Safety in the Kitchen!™ Sept. 24, 2020 – The Delaware State Fire School and the Laurel Fire Dept. are teaming up with the National Fire Protection Association® (NFPA®) — the official sponsor of Fire Prevention Week for more than 90 years —to promote this year’s Fire Prevention Week campaign, “Serve Up Fire Safety in the Kitchen!” The campaign works to educate everyone about simple but important actions they can take to keep themselves and those around them safe. According to NFPA, cooking is the leading cause of home fires and home fire injuries in the United States. Almost half (44%) of reported home fires started in the kitchen. Two-thirds (66%) of home cooking fires start with the ignition of food or other cooking materials. “We know cooking fires can be prevented,” said Lorraine Carli, NFPA’s vice-president of outreach and advocacy. “Staying in the kitchen, using a timer, and avoiding distractions such as electronics or TV are steps everyone can take to keep families safe in their homes.” Laurel Fire Dept. encourages all residents to embrace the 2020 Fire Prevention Week theme. contact the fire dept. or go to for more information
