Thanksgiving Cooking Safety in Crawford County
As we are gearing towards the season with the most home fires, it is important to plan for an unpredicted disaster. According to the National Fire Protection Association, “Thanksgiving is the peak day for home cooking fires with more than three times the daily average for such incidents.” The leading cause of Thanksgiving fires stem from lack of attention to food on the stove and turkey fryers. The NFPA urges citizens to “Stay in the kitchen and focus on the food you are cooking on the stovetop.” They also suggest that children stay out of the kitchen in case of fire, hot oil, knives, and hot stoves. Keep your family safe this holiday season.
