First Response Tips

Wondering what to do when your blender smokes, pot catches fire, or light bulb breaks?

Let Lowe's help with our first response tips that will keep you and Your home safe.

BLENDER SMOKES?

Unplug it immediately. If you cannot unplug it without touching the blender, turn off your breaker box. Once it had cooled, toss it out.

TOASTER SPARKS?

Don't touch it, move it or throw water on it. If the sparks are small, get rid of the flames with your fire extinguisher. Be sure to call 9-1-1. Even though you may not see it, the wiring in the wall may have caught fire too. If the fire has grown beyond your control, get everyone out of the house immediately and call 9-1-1.

POT CATCHES FIRE?

Turn off the heat source and put a pot lid over your pan to remove the oxygen source. Do not use glass lids; they can break from the extreme heat of an open flame. Wait for the pot to cool and the fire to go out before touching. Remember your safety is always the most important, if you cannot contain the fire, call 9-1-1 immediately.

LIGHT BULB BREAKS?

First, turn off or unplug the light source. Use a dry soap bar, carefully push one end of the bar against the light bulb to lodge the glass into the soft soap. Twist it free and discard the bar. Have broken glass on the floor? A piece of bread will pick up little pieces without cutting your fingers.
