Fire Safety

February 13, 2019

Hello All,

I wanted to reach out to everyone and remind you about fire safety.

Cooking fires are the leading cause of home fires and injuries. I will share with you a few cooking basics to prevent fires and nuisance alarms.

  • Never leave food unattended while cooking
  • Maintain a clean and tidy cooking area that is free of items that catch fire easily, such as, cloth, paper, and plastic.
  • Roll up your shirtsleeves or wear short, tight sleeves while cooking
  • Always keep a potholder, oven mitt, and a lid nearby

Please make sure your stove and drip pans stay are clean from grease. This can cause smoke to rise to smoke detectors and also prevent nuisance alarms. Also, remember that storing personal items in the hallways is a safety hazard. Storing personal items in the hallways of your buildings will result in a minimum charge of $25 and removal of the items.

Please remember that items, such as bicycles and strollers cannot be stored in stairwells.

 

If you have any questions regarding fire safety, please reach out to the Baity Hill office at baityhill@unc.edu.

 

Best,

Kellie McKnight
