Thanksgiving Safety Tips

Thanksgiving weekend is here!   We’ve put together some tips from NFPA to help ensure Thanksgiving is a safe one for you and your family!

  1. Stay in the kitchen when you are cooking on the
    stovetop so you can keep an eye on the food.
  2. Stay in the home when cooking your turkey and check
    on it frequently.
  3. Keep children away from the stove. The stove will be
    hot and kids should stay 3 feet away.
  4. Make sure kids stay away from hot food and liquids.
    The steam or splash from vegetables, gravy or coffee
    could cause serious burns.
  5. Keep the floor clear so you don’t trip over kids, toys,
    pocketbooks or bags.
  6. Keep knives out of the reach of children.
  7. 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.
  8. Keep matches and utility lighters out of the reach of
    children — up high in a locked cabinet.
  9. Never leave children alone in room with a lit candle.
  10. Make sure your smoke alarms are working. Test them
    by pushing the test button.
