Striking Essex Fire Brigade Tells Residents: ‘Avoid Kitchen Fires By Not Using Your Kitchens’
ESSEX County Fire and Rescue have advice for anyone looking to cook a meal during the Brigade’s strike: don’t.
Divisional Officer Neil Fenwick tells the taxpayers:
“Cooking is a huge cause of fires – around a third of all house fires start in the kitchen, so by ordering in a takeaway people can make a real difference and help us reduce the risk of fire. This advice is even more important to people who are going out for a drink. More than 10% of kitchen fires start after 11pm as people arrive home from a night out.
“Cooking after drinking is a recipe for disaster so our best advice is on your way home grab a kebab, murder a burger or hurry for a curry rather than try and cook when you get in.”
He’s got ready quips for fish and chips.
The advice is simple: to avoid kitchen fires do not use your kitchen.
