November 2020 Burn Bulletin

Each year, the first full week of October is dedicated to Fire Prevention Week. This year’s national theme was “Serve Up Fire Safety in the Kitchen.” Although kitchen safety is a very important topic, especially in recent months with so many people spending more time at home and preparing their own meals, it is not the most important issue facing California.
