Thanksgiving is the peak day for families cooking at home and enjoying time together. Unfortunately, it’s also the peak day from home cooking fires. Almost half of these fires are caused by faulty or misused cooking equipment. What’s even more terrifying is that these equipment accidents are the second leading cause of home fire deaths. To help prevent any injuries or accidents, below we will discuss some steps you can take to prevent being a statistic this holiday.
-Before you start cooking, make sure all your fire alarms are working. You can do this by pressing the test button.
-Stay home when cooking! Never leave the house and check on your meal frequently.
-Keep knives out of reach from children.
-Always stay in the kitchen when using the stovetop to keep an eye on the food.
