This photo is a humorous example of what NOT TO DO this Thanksgiving! Here are a few fire safety tips and facts to help you stay safe this holiday!

Turkey frying safety:
According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), deep-frying a turkey on Thanksgiving can be RISKY! Every year deep-fryer fires are responsible for five deaths, 60 injuries, the destruction of 900 homes, and more than $15-million in property damage. The cooking oil used in these fryers can quickly cause a flash fire at 600°F- keep a close eye on your setup. Use your fryer outside and according to instructions. Keep the fryer away from structures. Never fry a frozen turkey.

Cooking safety:
Keep stovetop pan handles pointed in. Keep children away from cooking appliances and knives. Do not leave the kitchen while cooking. Have a fire extinguisher nearby. Ensure all smoke detectors are functional.
