Thanksgiving Day Safety Tips
November 26, 2013 | News
Thanksgiving is the peak day of the year for home cooking fires. Here are some great tips from the National Fire Protection Association to ensure that you have a safe Holiday Season.
– Stay in the kitchen when you are cooking on the stovetop so you can keep an eye on the food.
– Stay in the home when cooking your turkey and check on it frequently.
– Keep children away from the stove. The stove will be hot and kids should stay 3 feet away.
– Make sure kids stay away from hot food and liquids. The steam or splash from vegetables, gravy or coffee could cause serious burns.
– Keep the floor clear so you don’t trip over kids, toys, pocketbooks or bags.
– Keep knives out of the reach of children.
– Be sure electric cords from an electric knife, coffee maker, plate warmer or mixer are not dangling off the counter within easy reach of a child.
– Keep matches and utility lighters out of the reach of children — up high in a locked cabinet.
– Never leave children alone in room with a lit a candle.
– Make sure your smoke alarms are working. Test them by pushing the test button.
