In total last year, Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service (GMFRS) attended 902 residential fires caused by cooking, more than half of all accidental fires in the home in Greater Manchester. The main aim of the Cook Safe campaign is to provide information about cooking and kitchen fire safety for residents, focusing on four key messages:

  • Never leave cooking unattended

  • Keep electrical leads, tea towels and cloths away from the cooker

  • Any type of pan can catch fire

  • More than half of accidental fires in the home start in the kitchen
