Tuesday, November 22, 2011

If you’re cooking for Thanksgiving, please be careful. Cooking fires are more likely to happen on Thanksgiving Day than any other day of the year, according to the National Fire Protection Association.
Here are a few tips and reminders:
• Keep materials that can easily catch on fire away from your stovetop.
• Never wear loose clothing while cooking.
• Remind children to never go near a stove or cooking appliance.
• Use the back burner whenever possible.
• Test smoke alarms throughout the house, but especially around the kitchen.
• Keep a fire extinguisher in the kitchen at all times.
• Never use a turkey fryer inside.
