Set The Table For Safety
Thanksgiving is a time to enjoy your family, friends and a wonderful feast. With Thanksgiving right around the corner practice these safety tips from the Electrical Safety Foundation for a safe and memorable Thanksgiving.
1. Smoke alarms should be installed in every bedroom, outside each sleeping area, and on every level of the home. For the best protection, smoke alarms should be interconnected, so that they all sound if one sounds.
2. Prevent fires by making sure your oven and stovetop are clean and free of grease and dust. You should also clean the exhaust hood and duct over the stove regularly.
3. Never leave cooking unattended. You should not cook if you are sleepy or under the influence of alcohol. Children should also be closely supervised and kept at least three feet away from all cooking appliances.
4. It’s easy to forget about something that’s cooking, especially when you’re entertaining guests. Use a kitchen timer to make sure your dish doesn’t become a fire hazard.
5. Enjoy! Being proactive about safety will give you peace of mind and allow you to enjoy your time with loved ones.
