The Hero Poncho is more than just rain gear. It’s a crucial part of your survival kit, which can save...
Kitchen fires damage properties and put lives at risk. Plus, they're one of the leading causes of house fires, according to the National Fire Protection Association.
This post features the top five items for your kitchen safety kit.
Five Must-Have Items for Your Kitchen Safety Kit
- Fire Spray
- Fire Blanket
- Fire Protection Gloves
- Smoke Mask
- Fire Sprinkler
Here are the items you must have to keep your kitchen safe from fire:
1. Fire Spray
A fire spray is the most crucial item in a fire safety kit. Unlike a fire extinguisher, a fire spray is easy to carry, eco-friendly, non-toxic, and easy to clean up.
Here's a table showing the differences between the Hero Fire Spray and a regular fire extinguisher:
|Hero Fire Spray||Regular Fire Extinguisher|
|Lightweight, easy to carry||Heavy, hard to carry|
|Easy to store||Needs more space for storage|
|Can put out all common fires at home||Can only put out specific types of fire|
|100% biodegradable||Mostly non-biodegradable materials|
|Easy to clean||Hard to clean|
|Safe for kids and pets||Not safe for kids and pets|
2. Fire Blanket
A fire blanket is a simple yet effective tool that smothers fire. It's handy for grease fires in the kitchen, which can't be extinguished by water.
Prepared Hero's Emergency Fire Blanket is a fast-acting, easy-to-use blanket that puts out a fire in seconds. Plus, it never expires, so you can use it as much as you want.
Simply pull the quick-release tabs and toss the blanket over the fire to prevent it from turning into a big, hot mess.
3. Fire Protection Gloves
Many households use oven mitts to try putting out small fires. However, oven mitts only protect you from heat, not flames.
This is where fire protection gloves come in handy. Prepared Hero's Fire Protection Gloves can resist extreme heat (up to 1,472°F). You can even hold hot coals using them. They also withstand a sharp knife without you feeling a thing.
Here's a table showing the differences between Prepared Hero's Fire Protection Gloves and oven mitts:
|Prepared Hero’s Fire Protection Gloves||Regular Oven Mitts|
|Resistant to sharp knives||Not resistant to sharp knives|
|Made of aramid fiber||Made of cheap plastic or rubber|
|Lightweight & breathable||Not breathable|
|Machine-washable||Tears in washer|
|Put out fire||Catch fire|
|Protect you from burns||Don’t protect you from burns|
4. Smoke Mask
Smoke irritates your eyes, throat, nose, and lungs. As a result, you wheeze, cough, or experience breathing difficulties.
The Hero Smoke Mask protects you from smoke, poisonous gas, and radiant heat. It lets you breathe for 60 minutes, so you can leave your house safely. Plus, its reflective smoke hood design protects your face and head from extreme heat.
5. Fire Sprinklers
A fire sprinkler system dramatically decreases heat, flames, and smoke. When properly installed and maintained, it can save lives. It also automatically activates after a kitchen fire occurs and makes fire damage cleanup easier.
