What’s Cooking – for Teens! A Fire Safety Program for Teens

Cooking is the number one cause of home fires in Canada, so it is critical that young people be aware of the hazards and how to prevent them. What’s Cooking – for Teens! is a lesson fire department personnel can deliver to students in grades 9 through 12. It focuses on the leading causes of kitchen fires and also includes important information about smoke alarms and home fire escape planning.

Fire departments are encouraged to contact local high schools and ask if you can conduct a lesson on cooking fire safety.

The PowerPoint version of the presentation is available on request at ofm.pubed@ontario.ca.
