Palm Coast – As part of the City of Palm Coast’s drive to engage with residents and provide pertinent fire safety information, a video was created to help inform the residents of ways to stay safe in the kitchen this holiday season.
Kitchen fires are one of the most reported calls reported during the holiday season. Whether it’s a grease fire or electrical outlet fire we want to find ways to create awareness of safety tips available for residents to stay safe in the kitchen.
This video features Palm Coast Fire Chief Jerry Forte baking one of his popular firehouse holiday deserts ‘Crumb Cake’. While Chief Forte bakes he discusses several fire safety tips to use while in the kitchen. The medium video was selected to communicate the public service announcement in an effort to keep viewers entertained and engaged.
