Thanksgiving Cooking Safety Tips!


 

NFPA joins CPSC to demonstrate the fire dangers of turkey fryers in this live burn. NFPA strongly discourages the use of turkey fryers.


For most, the kitchen is the heart of the home, especially during the holidays. 

As you start preparing your holiday schedule and orgainzing that large family feast, remember, by following a few simple safety tips you can enjoy time with your loved ones and keep yourself and your family safer from fire:

  • Follow the manufacturers' instructions for all cooking appliances.
  • 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.
  • Be sure electric cords from an electric knife, coffee maker, plate warmer or mixer, etc. are not touching other cooking appliances, or 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 candle.
  • Make sure your smoke alarms are working. Test them by pushing the test button each month.
