Kitchen Safety Vehicle - designed to promote kitchen safety

Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service's new Kitchen Safety Vehicle has been designed to promote kitchen safety, including:

  • Cooking safety

  • Grill safety

  • Electrical safety, including overloading your plug sockets,

  • Washing machine safety

  • Tumble drier safety

Kitchen Safety Vehicle

The vehicle has two kitchens - a clean kitchen and a kitchen that has been affected by fire.

Within the clean kitchen a variety of dangers have been set up, such as a chip pan on the hob, covered vents on the microwave and bottles of wine on the sideboard.

The second part of the vehicle is a mocked up burnt out kitchen. This is aimed to demonstrate what your kitchen could look like after a fire It recreates the look, feel and smell of a burnt kitchen.

Both Fire Angel and the Electrical Safety Council are sponsors and have invested in the vehicle.
