Thanksgiving Day Disaster in Eastpointe?
Cooking Safety Tips
It’s that time of year again where families gather to celebrate Thanksgiving. There will be lots of people in the home, lots of food, and probably some afternoon naps as well! SERVPRO® of St. Clair Shores responds to many fire damage emergencies this time of year, and our team of highly trained technicians are on call 24 hours a day to assist Eastpointe residents around the clock.
Cooking fires are very common this time of year but by following a few safety tips, you can prevent fires from starting. Here are some of the tips from the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), on things you can do to prevent a cooking fire on Thanksgiving Day:
- Stay in the kitchen when you are cooking on the stovetop so you can keep an eye on the food.
- Stay in the home when cooking your turkey and check on it frequently.
- Keep children away from the stove. The stove will be hot, and kids should stay three feet away.
- Make sure kids stay away from hot food and liquids. The steam or splash from vegetables, gravy, or coffee could cause serious burns.
