Thanksgiving is approaching fast!
Thursday, November 27
This is one of the busiest times for kitchens in many households.
Did you know that cooking fires are the leading cause of house fires in the United States?
As we celebrate and gather with our families, we need to review a few safety tips.
Please see the attached safety flyers from NFPA on Cooking Safety and Thanksgiving.
Many people enjoy fried turkeys during over the holidays. Although the fire service and NFPA discourage the use of turkey fryers, we ask that you follow some basic safety tips:
-Always follow the manufacturer recommendations.
-Only use outdoors (NOT inside homes or on porches).
-Keep a portable extinguisher nearby.
Better yet, consider an oil-less designed fryer!!!
