Recordando a la seguridad contra incendios cocinar esta víspera de Año Nuevo

Planning on hosting a New Year’s Eve party this year? What better way to ring in 2015 than with fire safety. With New Year’s festivities comes food, food and more food. Have you planned how you will organize your time? There’s nothing worse than letting thetick tockof the clock as it nears midnight distract you from your important tasks in the kitchen. Accidents happen when we’re being rushed or careless in our attempt to join in the fun. Did you know that New Year’s Day is one of the top five days for home fires? Let us all work on ways to change that

For instance, you might want to consider other options for your New Year’s Eve buffet and January 1st breakfast or brunch event if you’re already stressed about the time it’ll take to prepare a hot meal while juggling important time with friends and family. Perhaps you prepare food that can be served cold or at warm temperature, or you bring everyone into the mix and offer a potluck type of approach where guests bring their favorite dish.

If you’re like our family, you’ll be celebrating the holidays with friends and family who have come to visit well past January 1. It’s important not to forget the importance of staying alert and fully present in the kitchen no matter what’s happening in the room next door. NFPA and USFA’sPut a Freeze on Winter Firescampaign can help you stay safer in the kitchen, and provides a number of great resources that are easy to download and keep handy for those times when you absolutely have to prepare meals for entire crew.

As we say in Italian, Buon Anno, tutti! Enjoy your end of the year celebration wherever that takes you! Stay safe one and all, and we’ll see you in 2015.
