Motherhood Moment Presents Tips to Prevent Burns

Smart Safety: Kitchen Fire Safety

Guardian Safety Solutions International, Inc. (GSSI), the nation’s largest provider of range top fire suppression systems, wants to share tips for kitchen fire safety. Based on 2009-2013 annual averages, cooking equipment was the leading cause of home fires and fire injuries, causing 46% of home fires that resulted in 19% of the home fire deaths and 44% of the injuries. Two-thirds of home cooking fires started with the ignition of food or other cooking materials. Frying poses the greatest risk of fire (statistics from the National Fire Protection Association).
Ranges or cook tops accounted for the majority (61%) of home cooking fire incidents. “Prevention is the core of our ‘Guardian Solution’ range top suppression system. That’s why we observe fire prevention all year, not just this week,” said Paul Rouse, GSSI’s administrative officer. “The time to protect yourself against a range top fire is before it strikes. By installing the Guardian, you can rest at ease.” He added that kitchens can be retrofitted as well. With the system, a fire can be extinguished in as little as seven seconds (video). 10 tips for kitchen fire safety are:
  1. Never leave a room while cooking.
  2. If you must leave the room while cooking, turn off the stove.
  3. Keep pot handles turned to the back of the stove so children cannot grab them.
  4. Wear short sleeves or tight sleeves while cooking so nothing dangles near a flame.
  5. Keep paper, towels, pot holders, wooden utensils and curtains away from the cooking area.
  6. Have one or more fire extinguishers handy and know how to use them.
  7. Keep stove tops clean; remove built up grease and spilled food.
  8. Never throw water on a grease fire – smother it with a pan lid instead.
  9. Keep children and pets out of the “kid-free” zone three feet from the stove.
  10. Have a fire escape plan, and review and rehearse it often.

The Guardian is designed to detect and extinguish cooking fires and at the same time prevents re-ignition. Once it detects heat at a pre-determined temperature, a signal is sent to release the extinguishing agent to suppress the fire and to shut off the gas or electric supply to the stove in order to prevent reigniting.  “Whether it is a single home, apartment, senior housing, dormitory or church at risk, putting the fire out quickly is imperative to minimize damage and injury,” Rouse said.

Charges in Seniors’ Apartment Fire

Sadly, while lives were lost and additional people were injured in this Toronto fire, it was not caused by cooking. That said, it points out how important it is for senior housing to have laws and regulations to protect these elderly people from fires that are so destruction.  Zoning laws, construction laws and training must be increased and secured throughout the US and Canada.

elderly peopleThis couple married 51 years did not survive.

According to TCH records, the building was last inspected for fire safety in 2013. Under the Fire Code, buildings that are classified as seniors homes must undergo annual fire inspections.

Building Safety Month Brings Awareness to Code Enforcement and Safety

GuardianSSI Asks Code Officials to Increase Fire Prevention in Commercial Occupancies

Dallas – In the midst of Building Safety Month, launched by the International Code Council (ICC) and its 57,000 members worldwide, Guardian Safety Solutions International, Inc. (GSSI) is raising awareness in the industry by observing the mission of ICC’s public awareness campaign. GSSI is the leader in the development and manufacturing of superior fire suppression equipment for commercial occupancies where residential appliances are in use. The ICC, along with a diverse partnership of professionals from the building construction, design and safety community launched Building Safety Month 35 years ago.

“Cooking fires are the number one cause of injury and death associated with fires,” said Paul Rouse, GSSI’s administrative officer. He added, “GuardianSSI champions the adoption of modern building codes, implementing a strong and efficient system of code enforcement and a professional workforce that works with code officials to increase fire prevention and safety.” Guardian products are designed to detect and extinguish fires and prevent re-ignition in senior housing facilities, college campuses, churches, fire stations, hospitals and other commercial occupancies. “The Guardian fire suppression systems are increasingly accepted nationwide as code officials are educated to the hazard protection advantages the GSSI systems provide,” Rouse said. “We offer ongoing training to code officials when they sign up on our website,” Rouse added.

GuardianSSI recently launched the Guardian Model G600B to include electronic operation with electric and gas ranges (watch the video demo). It works with any standard over-the-stove microwave/range hood. Each system is UL/ULC listed with a gas or electric fuel shutoff. The G600B has an updated, integrated self-diagnostic CPU board with a monitored pressure gauge. It features a pull-pin holder for arming the system, an alarm connection for a trouble and activation signal, quick and easy plug connectors and an RF transmitter and receiver for wireless shutoff connections. Benefits of Guardian systems include automatic operation, continuous 24-hour protection, concealed installation, easy clean-up and proven reliability. For end users, Guardian Fire Suppression Systems offer substantial savings over a traditional commercial system.
