Did you know?

Thanksgiving is the leading day of the year for home fires involving cooking equipment.

Fire District 7 offers the following safety tips for your Thanksgiving holiday:

  • Start your holiday cooking with a clean stove and oven, removing grease buildup and food spills to lessen the chance of a flare-up.
  • Use the back burners whenever possible and keep the pot handles turned in so they can’t be easily bumped into or grabbed by a child.
  • Never leave cooking food unattended.
  • If there is a power outage while you are cooking, be sure to turn off all of your cooking appliances until the power is restored.
  • Keep your family and overnight guests safe with plenty of working smoke alarms. Install smoke alarms in every bedroom, outside each sleeping area and on every level of the home
  • Keep holiday decorations away from heat sources such as stoves, candles and heaters.
