This is your quick reminder that in the kitchen chaos, it isn’t hard to accidentally have a kitchen fire occur. It just keep s quick second to be aware of what is going on and follow the tips below:

If you are frying a turkey, make sure it done outside and away from the home. Keep flammable objects away from the stove top, and make sure you know how to properly put out a grease fire (do not use water, turn off the heat and smother it with a lid).

Dont Forget…. Turn Back Time!


Early Sunday morning, Daylight Savings Time will end and we will gain extra time by moving our clocks back an hour here in the Pacific Northwest.

Although we cannot technically turn back time like many of us may wish could to be a little younger,  we can use this moment to remember to do some important tasks in keeping our loved ones safe.

This weekend is a good time to take care of a couple small tasks that can make a big difference if an emergency happens.


  • Use this weekend to check your fire alarms,and CO2 Detectors.


  • Be sure to change the batteries.  Make sure they are in good operational order before winter begins.



  • Take a few moments to review the items in your Emergency Kits.  Replace any out-dated items


  • Exchange out clothing and shoes, and other items in kits for colder weather. (Don’t forget to check the items in your vehicle also.)
