Turkey Fryer Safety in the Pepper Pike Area
Thinking about using a fryer to cook your turkey this Thanksgiving? Please remember to follow all the safety tips provided at the time of purchase so you do not become a statistic. What could go wrong? Let's ask our friends at the National Fire Protection Agency:
- “Thanksgiving is the peak day for home cooking fires, followed by Christmas Day and Christmas Eve.
- In 2015, U.S. fire departments responded to an estimated 1,760 home cooking fires on Thanksgiving, the peak day for such fires.
- Unattended cooking was by far the leading contributing factor in cooking fires and fire deaths.
- Cooking equipment was involved in almost half (48%) of all reported home fires and civilian and tied with heating equipment for the second leading cause of home fire deaths.”
