Had no idea home cooking fires are that high. Since I cook a lot, glad to see actions in place to mitigate these dangerous accidents.

All strategies were engineering strategies defined by a condition to be detected (e.g. overheat of pan or food in pan, absence of person actively engaged in cooking process, early-stage fire on stovetop) and an action to be taken (e.g., shut off cooking heat, sound alarm, suppress fire).
