The smell of bacon for a bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich fills the air, the sound of the bacon sizzling in the grease on the stove, but it’s a little hot, the next thing you know there is fire on the stove. The grease has started a fire. What do you do? Do you throw water on it? Do you throw flour on it? Do you throw a wet towel over it? Or do you run, leave the house and call 911; wait for the fire department while your kitchen or your house burns?Do you have a fire extinguisher? Can you use it? Have you ever used a fire extinguisher on an actual fire? What if it was your kids doing the cooking and you are not at home; do they know what to do?
What if there was a class that could offer you the information to immediately and confidently deal with that situation correctly that could potentially save your kitchen, your home or the lives of your family? Would that interest you? Do you know of anyone that has lost a home or a vehicle to fire, did they know what to do? You can learn how to deal with this now.
