Remember "PASS" when using a fire extinguisher:

P-Pull the pin;
A-Aim at the base of the fire;
S-Squeeze the extinguisher handle;
S-Sweep from side to side while aiming at the base of the fire.

  Practice kitchen safety: turn off and unplug appliances when not in use. Turn pot handles inward so they won't be pulled or knocked off the stove. Make sure that children are supervised in the kitchen at all times. Never leave food cooking on the stove unattended.
