Fire Prevention Week is October 6-12, and this year’s theme is, “Prevent Kitchen Fires and Get Cooking with Fire Safety!”

A menacing visitor brings danger to a farm. The Co-operators teams up with the Canadian Association of Fire Chiefs and the Fire Marshal's Public Fire Safety Council to create fire safety awareness.

Watch as The Stovenator lurches its way onto a farm in order to wreak havoc.

In order to stop the Stovenator in its smoky tracks, The Co-operators has teamed up with the Fire Marshal's Public Fire Safety Council and the Canadian Association of Fire Chiefs to raise awareness of the dangers surrounding cooking and preventable kitchen fires.

Seven out of ten fires in Canada start at home. More fires begin in the kitchen than in any other room and residential cooking is one of the leading causes of fire-related deaths. Most kitchen fires occur because people get distracted and leave their cooking unattended. It takes seconds for a pot or pan to splatter grease or overheat creating a fire that can quickly spread. Cooking fires are the number one cause of home fires and home fire injuries. On farms, a potential kitchen fire can be especially devastating as homeowners might be outside doing chores during which time fire can quickly spread.
