Prevent manufacture of ground level stoves that can be less easily toppled over.
4. Modify the release of the hazard:
Promote the use of flame retardant fabrics to reduce burning rates.
5. Separate in time or space:
Use cooking units that children cannot reach or keep children out of the kitchen when cooking.
