Many domestic fires start on the cooker or hob. To avoid fires starting on the hob you should not leave the kitchen when cooking food. If you must leave a hob temperature alarm will alert you if you have forgotten to turn off a ring or if a pot boils dry. The hob alarm detects an abnormal rise in temperature and a high pitched alarm sounds to attract attention. With a fire alarm, fire extinguisher, fire blanket and a hob alarm in your home you will be well prepared in case of a fire.
