10 Thanksgiving Fire Safety Tips

8210557842_4ffce3a8ac_zDid you know that on Thanksgiving Day the amount of kitchen fires are two times more likely to occur than on any other day of the year? That seems reasonable, as most of us are celebrating a holiday that resonates because of the amount of food preparation that takes place. That is why we want you to be prepared for the worst, while enjoying the holiday.

Here are 10 tips to keep in mind as the day of feasts approaches:

  1. Install a fire detector in or near the kitchen.
  2. Never leave the kitchen when frying or grilling food.
  3. Use a timer when cooking.
  4. If using a deep-fryer, keep the fryer outside, away from any walls.
  5. Avoid loose clothes or long sleeves while cooking.
  6. Make sure all candles around the house are securely placed.
  7. Keep kids away from cooking areas.
  8. Keep all flammable things – oven mitts, wooden utensils, paper or plastic bags, towels – away from the stove top and oven.
  9. Keep the floors clear of any objects you may trip over.
  10. Make your fire extinguisher functions properly, and place in or near the kitchen.

We hope that you take these tips and put them to use while you prepare for Thanksgiving. Then, the only thing you will have to worry about is overeating. Have a wonderful holiday!
