Thanksgiving is the number one day for Home cooking fires.  With a house full of guests, a lot going on, and possibly drinking more than we are accustomed to, it is easy to get distracted.

  • The number one cause of fires is unattended cooking.  If anybody wants to talk to you, set a timer if you leave the kitchen or have them come to you.
  • Too many cooks in the kitchen: make certain guests do not set paper plates and napkins close to burners. Also use backburners when possible - if not turn pan handles away from you.
  • Wear snug clothing when cooking,  dangling clothes can catch fire.    


Black Friday:

Holiday Shopping starts earlier and earlier each year (I read Best Buy is opening at 5:00 p.m. on Thanksgiving this year!). If you will be out on Black Friday (or even Thanksgiving) these tips might help:

  • For security pick well lit parking spaces.
  • Back into parking spaces when possible or back out slowly when backing out (many people drive like maniacs in parking lots).  
  • Get your keys ready well before you get to your vehicle.
  • If you drop off purchased items in your vehicle and go back for more, put the items in your trunk or cover them up in your hatch.

Happy Thanksgiving!!
