Staying safe in the kitchen during the season of feasts.

Thanksgiving

For most, the kitchen is the heart of the home, especially during the holidays. From testing family recipes to decorating cakes and cookies, everyone enjoys being part of the preparations.

 

So keeping fire safety top of mind in the kitchen during this joyous but hectic time is important, especially when there’s a lot of activity and people at home. As you start preparing your holiday schedule and organizing that large family feast, remember, by following a few simple safety tips you can enjoy time with your loved ones and keep yourself and your family safer from fire.

Safety tips

  • Stay in the kitchen when you are cooking on the stovetop so you can keep an eye on the food.
  • Stay in the home when cooking your turkey and check on it frequently.
  • Keep children away from the stove. The stove will be hot and kids should stay 3 feet away.
  • Make sure kids stay away from hot food and liquids. The steam or splash from vegetables, gravy or coffee could cause serious burns.
  • Keep the floor clear so you don’t trip over kids, toys, pocketbooks or bags.
  • Keep knives out of the reach of children.
  • Be sure electric cords from an electric knife, coffee maker, plate warmer or mixer are not dangling off the counter within easy reach of a child.
  • Keep matches and utility lighters out of the reach of children — up high in a locked cabinet.
  • Never leave children alone in room with a lit candle.
  • Make sure your smoke alarms are working. Test them by pushing the test button.

Celebrate responsibly--don't drive drunk.

DUI Enforcement car at night

We're deploying extra DUI patrols. It's the season of holiday parties, and we want to see you all safe in 2018. That's why the Roseville Police Department will have extra DUI enforcement officers out on the weekends throughout the holiday season. 

DUI doesn't just mean booze.  You can also be arrested for driving under the influence of marijuana or impairing prescription drugs.  Don't risk it--designate a driver or call a sober friend or a taxi/ride service for a safe ride home. 

Be a DUI spotter. See a drunk driver/erratic driver? Call 911. An officer will respond and check it out.


Kids in the Kitchen.

Kids in the Kitchen

Do your kids like helping out in the kitchen and cooking up tasty snacks for your friends and family? Preparing yummy treats can be lots of fun, but it's important that kids who like to cook know how to be safe in the kitchen. These tips can help you figure out which tasks they're old enough to do on their own as well as tasks they may need your assistance with.

Kids 3-5 can:

  • Get ingredients out of the refrigerator
  • Measure and mix ingredients together in a bowl
  • Wash fruits and vegetables off under cold water

Kids 6-8 can:

  • Open Packages
  • Set the table
  • Peel vegetables

Kids 9-12 can:

  • Open Cans
  • Make a salad
  • Help plan the meal

Kids 14 and over can:

  • Drain cooked pasta into a colander
  • Heat food up in the microwave without adult present
  • Take tray of food out of the oven.

For the full list of age appropriate ways that your kid can assist you in the kitchen, visit the National Fire Protection's website by clicking here.

      It's time to brush up on rainy-season driving skills.
      Our firefighters and police officers have been responding to a lot of traffic crashes since the rainy season started, so it's time to brush up on winter driving habits. Wet roads = slippery roads, so slow down and allow more stopping time for yourself and other drivers. Also, always turn your headlights on anytime your wipers are on--it's the law, and it makes your car more visible to other drivers.
      Meet your new POP/Parks Officer
      Officer Anganes is the newest member of the RPD's Social Services Unit/POP (Problem Oriented Policing) unit.  His focus will be on the parks, trails and open space areas.
