Thanksgiving 2020 Safety Tips
Wednesday, November 25th, 2020

Statistically, the majority of cooking-related fires often occur on Thanksgiving. Considering tomorrow is Thanksgiving, here are a few tips for staying safe: Never leave cooking unattended. Keep cooking areas clear of combustibles (paper, towels, etc.), and wear clothes with short, rolled-up, or tight-fitting sleeves when you cook. Turn pot handles inward on the stove where you can't accidentally bump them and children can't grab them. Enforce a "kid-free zone" that is three feet around your kitchen stove. If grease catches fire in a pan, don't panic, slide a lid over the pan to smother the flames, and turn off the heat source. Leave the lid on until the pan is completely cool. Additionally, make sure your Smoke and CO detectors are in working order, and your home address is well lit and visible for responders to find.
