Thanksgiving is full of love and warmth of friendship. What happens when the warmth of the holidays becomes more literal and a fire burns your holiday cheer? Thanksgiving Day is one of the top days for fire related incidents. Do not let a fire ruin your Thanksgiving holiday. Stop fire before it starts by keeping these simple tips in mind.
- Stay in the kitchen if you are cooking food in the oven or on the stove, to keep an eye on the food and make sure it turns out delicious.
- If you are cooking turkey, stay at home and check on it frequently to make sure it is cooking properly.
- Protect your children by keeping them away from the stove and other hot foods or liquids that could cause serious burns. Enforcing a no kid’s policy in the kitchen could be a good idea to make sure they do not get underfoot or hurt themselves as you are cooking.
- Keep the floor clear of clutter. A broken or sprained ankle can put a damper on your Thanksgiving festivities. Making sure the floor remains clear of purses, toys, and other things can be a good way to prevent painful trips and falls.
- Do not leave any heat source unmonitored. Be it a candle, a fireplace, stove, or some other kitchen appliance, leaving it unattended is a bad idea. If a heat source is left unattended and something goes wrong you may be too late to do anything about it.
- Check your smoke alarms and make sure they are working. A working smoke alarm can reduce the chance of fire fatalities by almost half.
