Video: How to deal with common kitchen fire

You should see this one! See it again even though you have seen it before!!! This is a dramatic video (30-second, very short) about how to deal with a common kitchen fire... oil in a frying pan. Read the following introduction, then watch the show. It's a real eye-opener! At the Fire Fighting Training school they would demonstrate this with a deep fat fryer set on the fire field. An instructor would don a fire suit and using an 8 oz cup at the end of a 10-foot pole toss water onto the grease fire. The results got the attention of the students.

Don't PANIC!

Water, being heavier than oil, sinks to the bottom where it instantly becomes superheated. The explosive force of the steam blows the burning oil up and out. On the open field, it becomes a thirty foot high fireball that resembled a nuclear blast. Inside the confines of a kitchen, the fire ball hits the ceiling and fills the entire room.

Also, do not throw sugar or flour on a grease fire. One cup creates the explosive force of two sticks of dynamite.

A saucepan lid or a bread board works just as well and is quicker to put onto the saucepan.

sebutir kata:
This is a powerful message --- watch the video and don't forget what you see. Tell your whole family about this video. Or better yet, send this to them.

Experience is knowledge... everything else is information.
