Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and there are definitely a lot of opinions about how it should be celebrated this year. With cases of Coronavirus once again on the rise, we will all be taking some extra precautions on turkey day (check out what the CDC guidelines are for celebrating Thanksgiving). Illness isn’t the only thing we need to be careful about on Thanksgiving, however. Lots of food preparation requiring electricity and gas means that we also need to be aware of fire safety as well.
The National Fire Protection Association tell us,”Thanksgiving is the peak day for home cooking fires….” In 2018, over 1,500 fires were responded to by United States fire departments on Thanksgiving day. Even if you are having a much smaller Thanksgiving this year, it is still important to follow safety precautions while preparing food in your kitchen.
