Thanksgiving Cooking Tips for Fire Prevention:

  1. Mind Your Kitchen:
    • Never leave the kitchen unattended while cooking.
    • Use a timer to remind yourself to check on the stove or oven regularly.
    • Keep flammable items such as towels, pot holders, and paper towels away from heat sources.
  1. Check Your Appliances:
    • Ensure that all your kitchen appliances are in good working condition.
    • Clean grease from the oven, stove, and exhaust hood to prevent flare-ups.
  1. Stay in the Know:
    • Familiarize yourself with the location of fire extinguishers in your home.
    • Have an emergency plan in place and make sure all family members know what to do in case of a fire.
  1. Proper Turkey Thawing and Frying:
    • Thaw your turkey in the refrigerator, never on the counter, to prevent bacterial growth.
    • If deep-frying, do so outdoors and away from structures.
