As Fire Prevention Week approaches, Hillsborough Fire Department reminds residents: “Cooking safety starts with YOU. Pay attention to fire prevention.”
The Hillsborough Fire Department is teaming up with the National Fire Protection Association® (NFPA®) — the official sponsor of Fire Prevention WeekTM (FPW) for more than 100 years — to promote this year’s FPW campaign, “Cooking safety starts with YOU. Pay attention to fire preventionTM.” The campaign works to educate everyone about simple but important actions they can take when cooking to keep themselves and those around them safe.
