Cooking Safety

Cooking fires are the number one cause of home fires and home injuries and we felt it was timely to share some excellent guidance on cooking safety from the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). In addition, we would like to remind residents that our stovetop range hoods are equipped with fire-stopping suppression canisters that will automatically deploy when flames from a cooking fire make contact with the fuse on the underside of the canister. These canisters are usually enough to extinguish a standard cooking fire, however, in some cases where the fire is more significant, they alone will not be enough to fully extinguish the fire.

We care about the safety of our residents and want your living experience here to be exceptional. We want to hear from you if you have any questions or concerns we can address. Please feel free to stop by our management office during our regular hours.
