The article went on to say that more than 20,000 restaurants in New York City already supply used cooking oil that is then converted and blended into fuel. That’s pretty amazing, if you ask me!

But while using cooking oil to heat homes is an interesting idea, until the day this energy alternative comes full circle, let’s make sure we are steadfast in our commitment to safety when cooking with oil in our kitchens, and are mindful of the dangers heating equipment can pose if not properly used.

Find great tips on heating safety this season on NFPA and USFA’s Put a Freeze on Winter Fires campaign webpage, including a checklist that you can download and post on your fridge for easy access.

Safety considerations for cooking with oil can also be found on NFPA’s Cooking Fire Safety Central web pages. Learn more today and help keep you and your family safe this cold and snowy winter season.
