									                  Seeking Safe & Healthy Recipes

Do you have a nutritious and safe recipe? If so, West Yorkshire Fire
and Rescue Service want to hear from you……
West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service (WYFRS) is committed to working with
partners in the community to reduce the number of fire related incidents in the District.
The Safe and Healthy Cooking Competition has been developed by WYFRS as a fun
and exciting way to address the issue of cooking related home fires. Our statistics
show that the majority of dwelling fires are cooking related and that young people,
students and older people are most at risk. The family ‘busy period’ also presents a
high risk time where distractions can result in accidental cooking fires. The competition
has been designed around four categories to reflect this:

   •   Children and Young People
   •   Busy families
   •   Students
   •   Older people

The aim of the competition is to raise awareness of fire safety issues in the kitchen and
promote healthy and nutritious cooking. We are offering entrants the opportunity to
submit recipes that will consider the safety aspects of cooking whilst promoting good
nutrition.

We have some amazing prizes on offer which include a range of kitchen electrical
appliances, a cooking demonstration in your own home and a ‘Fire Station Experience’,
plus much more. If that’s not enough, the winning recipes will be included in one of the
four recipe books being developed by WYFRS that will be available across West
Yorkshire. The recipe books will be launched at the grand opening of Safety Central,
WYFRS centre of excellence for the development and delivery of safety awareness
and education, in Autumn 2009.

We hope that you will take part in the competition and encourage your friends,
colleagues and clients to take part also. You can make as many group or individual
entries as you wish; there is no limit to enticing recipes and, if you are part of a
community group, school group or something similar, the competition offers an ideal
opportunity to raise the issues of safe kitchen practices and good nutrition with your
members or students

The competition closing date is 28th February 2009. Judging will take place in March
2009, with the winners notified by 20th April 2009.
We look forward to receiving your entries and good luck!
