As you plan your Thanksgiving menu, don't forget to add a pinch of fire safety:

If you are roasting your turkey, make sure to set a timer.

If you are frying your turkey remember to:

  • Use a fryer with thermostat controls.
  • Thaw your turkey completely.
  • Do not overfill the pot with oil.
  • Keep children and pets at least 3 feet away from the fryer.
  • Always, use the fryer outdoors, away from the structure.

Never leave cooking unattended.

Keep combustibles (dish towels, paper towels, etc.) at least 3 feet away from the cooking surface.

Keep a large pan lid or baking sheet handy in case you need to smother a pan fire.

Turn pot handles turned to the side or towards the back of the stove so you don't bump them.

Treat burns by putting them under cold water (from the faucet) for at least 10-15 minutes.
