CHIP PAN DEMONSTRATION

Location: Opposite Strand House, Strand Street

Kerry Fire and Rescue will be carrying out Fire Safety demonstrations this year for the Dingle Food Festival. The demonstrations are carried out utilising a Chip Pan Demonstration Unit. The fire fighters place 1.5cm of oil in a pan and turn the gas up until the pan is set alight. Once the pan is a light, they put a few ounces of fire into the pan to communicate to the audience the dangers of putting out a cooking fire with water.

They then demonstrate the safest method of extinguishing an unattended fire with a fire blanket and talk about the dangers of unattended cooking.

During the demonstration, the fire fighters will talk about the importance of installing and maintain working smoke alarms in the home, having a fire escape plan, how to communicate directions to 999/112, keeping all doors closed at night and the effectiveness of a night time fire safety routine.

After the demonstration, they take questions from the audience and give general fire safety advice and hand out fire safety leaflets.
