Cooking fire safety resources for fire educators
Cooking fire safety banner

Cooking is the #1 cause of fires. To support local fire educators, the Department of Fire Services has created a Cooking Fire Safety public awareness campaign that promotes two key messages: Stand By Your Pan to prevent cooking fires and Put A Lid On It as the best response to stove top fires. It features three firehouse chefs and their recipes. It includes:

  • TV spots (1 English, 1 Spanish)
  • Radio spots (1 English, 1 Spanish)
  • Cooking safety recipe cards (English and Spanish)
  • Logos
  • Tri-fold pamphlet in 3 languages
  • Newspaper ads
  • Customizable local press release
  • A lesson plan
  • Bookmark artwork



Download and use the Toolkit resources in your local education efforts.

In addition to Toolkit items, DFS has kitchen props that can be used for hands-on teaching about how to prevent and respond to kitchen fires. Contact the Fire Data & Public Education Unit at 978-567-3381 to borrow one or for advice on planning your program.
