Thanksgiving Fire Safety Tips 

11/19/2018 (Permalink)

It's that time of year again that we all gather together and enjoy great food, and family time.  SERVPRO of Sun City/Sun City West/SE Surprise, along with some safety tips from The American Red Cross, would like to help keep you safe this Thanksgiving.  
*Never leave cooking food unattended.   
*Stay in the kitchen when you are frying, grilling, or broiling food.  If you must leave the kitchen for even a short period of time, turn off the stove.   
*If you are simmering, baking, boiling, or roasting food, check it regularly, remain in the home while food is cooking, and use a timer to remind yourself that the stove or oven is on.   
*Avoid wearing loose clothing or dangling sleeves while cooking.  
* Keep kids away from cooking areas by enforcing a "kid-free zone" of three feet around the stove.  
* Keep anything that can catch on fire—pot holders, oven mitts, wooden utensils, paper or plastic bags, food packaging, and towels or curtains—away from your stove top and oven or any other appliance in the kitchen that generates heat.  
* Clean cooking surfaces on a regular basis to prevent grease buildup.  
* Consider purchasing a fire extinguisher to keep in your kitchen.  Contact your local fire department to take training on the proper use of extinguishers.   
* Always check the kitchen before going to bed or leaving the home to make sure all stoves, ovens, and small appliances are turned off.   
* Smoke alarms save lives.  Install a smoke alarm near your kitchen. 

A new trend for cooking your Thanksgiving turkey is to fry them.  Please remember safety first! The link below is a video shows what can happen if you do not follow a few simple safety-first rules.
