Kitchen Fire Safety

this is GOOD to watch. the video is only 30 seconds long, but it will change (and possibly save) your life.

Please read this and watch the video. This is so old as I am I
never heard of doing the wet towel thing... but I will remember it after seeing
this. Kitchen Fire Safety - Good reminder for everyone.....

This is a powerful message----watch the video and don't forget what you see. Tell your whole family about this video. Or better yet, send this to them.

This is a dramatic video (30-second, very short) about how to deal with a common kitchen fire ... oil in a frying pan. Please read the following introduction and then
watch the show .. It's a real eye-opener !! At the Fire Fighting Training school
they would demonstrate this with a deep fat fryer set on the fire field. An
instructor would don a fire suit and using an 8 oz cup at the end of a 10 foot
pole toss water onto the grease fire. The results got the attention of the
students. The water, being heavier than the oil, sinks to the bottom where it
instantly becomes superheated. The explosive force of the steam blows the
burning oil up and out. On the open field, it became a thirty foot high fireball
that resembled a nuclear blast. Inside the confines of a kitchen, the fire ball
hits the ceiling and fills the entire room. Also, do not throw sugar or flour on
a grease fire. One cup creates the explosive force of two sticks of dynamite.
