Don’t Create an Epic Fail in the Kitchen this Christmas

Date : 15 December 2020

Today we launch our safe cooking campaign aimed at gamers, urging them not to become distracted when at the helm in the kitchen.

Gaming has fast become one of the many distractions when cooking in our hectic, modern lifestyles – whether gaming yourself, or parents becoming distracted when trying to get the kids off the Xbox, Switch or games console.

We want to encourage gamers to #LookWhileYouCook this festive season and put the controller down when cooking.

Computer games mixed with cooking can quickly turn into an epic fail in the kitchen! Not only could you lose your game but you could lose your home.

 Kitchen fires are the most common cause of the fires in the home, with people becoming easily distracted.

Although this year we have celebrated our lowest number of accidental fires ever, we wish to improve on this great achievement.

More than half of accidental fires at home start in the kitchen.

Many kitchen fires happen when people are not paying attention or they leave things unattended.

With your help we hope to reduce these types of incidents across East Sussex, Brighton & Hove.
