Fire Department Teaches Culinary Classes About Fire Safety

Students learn about fire hazards and safety around fires in the kitchen

The local Wentzville Fire Department came to Liberty to talk about fire safety and cooking fires to culinary arts students on Tuesday, Sept. 19. 

“Fifty seven percent of fires start in the kitchen and it’s important,” said Mrs. Pizzo, the culinary arts teacher. “It’s easy to forget how dangerous cooking is with the hot temperatures.”

The fire department talked about different fire extinguishers and how to use them. Water, foam, CO2, powder, water mist and wet chemicals are the six main types of fire extinguishers.

Each of the different types is suitable for different fire classes. The students could also try to use the fire extinguishers with water to get a feeling how it works. Students stood outside watching as the firefighters demonstrated how to work the extinguishers.  

“We are coming here today to give instructions on how to use fire extinguishers and how to properly use fire alarms at home, in school, or in commercial buildings,” Wentzville Fire Department Captain Dave Marlo said.

The leading cause of a kitchen fire is if the meal is left unattended. There are several more causes, such as cooking with oil, grease or butter on a high heat.

“Anything can happen in a class, fire happens. So it’s important to know about safety,” senior Jumana Aljamal said.
