Super Bowl Sunday: Game Day Fire Safety

You’ve waited months for this game and are excited to see who takes home the Lombardi Trophy. Whether your team is playing this year or not, nothing brings together fans like a good old fashioned Super Bowl party. 

You’ve got the big-screen TV set up, coolers of ice ready for drinks, and a list of foods to prepare for the game. 

Check out the following tips to make sure the only thing on fire is your team.

Before Cooking:

  1. Make sure appliances work properly.

    • Keep dips warm in the slow cooker and use the microwave to heat up frozen finger food. Keep an eye on the appliances and make sure cords aren’t frayed or damaged.

  2. Make sure the cooking area is clean and clutter-free.

    • Keep anything flammable, such as oven mitts, towels, even food packaging, at least 3 feet away from the stove. Make sure the stovetop and oven are wiped down and cleaned so older grease won’t cause any problems. 

  3. Make sure there’s a fire extinguisher nearby and the smoke alarm works.

    • For extra precaution, put a baking pan nearby in case you need to smother any flames.

 

While Cooking:

  1. Keep an eye on the food, not the ball.

    • It’s tempting to run into the other room to catch an instant replay but it takes less than 30 seconds for

      smoke to turn into fire. If you don’t want to miss a moment of the game, start cooking earlier. 

  2. Heat cooking oil slowly and add food in gradually to avoid splatter.

  3. Stay alert, awake, and sober.

    • Don’t crack open a beer until you’re finished using the stove or oven.

  4. Make sure kids stay safe.

    • Children should stay at least 3 feet away from anything that can get hot. Keep handles and anything hot out of their reach.

 

Super Bowl Sunday is the 2nd highest food consumption day of the year (right after Thanksgiving), so you may expect to cook quite a bit. Prepare ahead of time so you can finish cooking and relax by kick-off, rather than being stressed and annoyed about missing the game. Use these tips to keep your Super Bowl party fun and safe.
