We’ve compiled the statistics & the trend is clear: Thanksgiving is the busiest day for residential cooking fires. In 2017, cooking related fires increased by 238% on this day. We urge residents to avoid turkey fryers, but if you are using one, cook outside and away from your home. The turkey should be dried and thawed before cooking. To avoid oil spilling and causing injury, ensure the oil isn’t overfilled in the fryer. If oil begins to smoke, turn the gas supply off immediately. Immediately dial 911 if you suspect a fire problem. Please take a moment to review the safety information below. For more info, visit: www.usfa.fema.gov
