As fire prevention week comes to an end and we focused on kitchen safety- here is a commercial kitchen example of what not to do. Do not put water on a grease fire! #ServeUpFireSafetyInTheKitchen



Zo blus je dus niet een vetbrand..

Als u water op het brandende vet gooit, is er meteen sprake van de vorming van stoom. Daardoor neemt het volume van het gebruikte water enorm toe en de stoom perst het brandende vet als het ware uit de pan. Het gevolg laat zich raden. Een grote hoeveelheid brandend vet verspreidt zich door de ruimte en de gevolgen kunnen desastreus zijn, zeker ook voor eventueel aanwezige personen. Het proberen een vetbrand te blussen met water is dus niet alleen zinloos, het is ook bijzonder gevaarlijk.

Ons advies is daarom om een vetbrandblusser (klasse F) in de keuken te hangen. Hiermee dicht je de brandende vloeistof af met schuim en zodoende van zuurstof. Verder actie is hierna niet nodig. Een CO2-blusser kan ook, maar dan is snelle afdekking met een deksel of blusdeken na de blusactie nodig. Daarmee voorkom je dat de brand opnieuw kan oplaaien. Blus nooit een vet- of oliebrand met regulier blusschuim (daar zit te veel vocht in).

Now that the tryptophan coma is over many people are ready to start decorating for the holidays.

Even if you are your neighborhood's Clark Griswold, please be cautious and follow these simple tips while hanging your lights:
1. Safety First – only UL approved outdoor lights and extension cords should be used.
2. Check your lights to make sure the cords aren't frayed and test them before hanging them.
3. Inspect your ladder to make sure it is in good working order and remember that most ladders can conduct electricity so be careful around electrical sources.
4. Use a buddy system – make sure you have someone helping, especially when using a ladder.
5. Make sure your roof is dry and free of snow and other obstructions.

Once you safely hang all your lights feel free to share a picture in the comments below.
