Thanksgiving Fire Safety Tips
Never leave the stove or oven unattended.
Unattended cooking is the number one cause of home fires in the U.S.
Keep children away from stove-tops, open fires, lighters, matches, and candles.
The NFPA recommends you should keep children at least 3 feet away from the stove while in use or cooking.
Be careful of cords cluttering the kitchen.
Electric mixers and knives, coffee makers, and plate warmers can be electrical fire hazards due to the amount of electricity running through one or few outlets.
Test your smoke alarms.
Make sure to test your alarms before you start cooking and at least once a month after, so you will be alerted as soon as possible in case of a fire. First Alert’s Dual Sensor alarms are able to reduce false alarms triggered by cooking.
