Happy Holiday, Not Happy Hazardous Holiday
Each November, families gather to celebrate Thanksgiving by preparing a delicious feast, but if you don't practice safe cooking habits, your happy holiday could become a hazardous one!
According to the National Fire Protection Association, cooking is the main cause for home fires and injuries, with Thanksgiving being the peak day for cooking-related fires.
Listed are just a few safety tips to help keep you safe for this holiday season.
- Never leave cooking food unattended-stay in the kitchen when frying, grilling, or boiling food.
- Do not wear loose clothing or dangling sleeves while cooking.
- Purchase a Fire Extinguisher to keep in the kitchen.
