State Fire Marshal's Office Discusses Holiday Safety

THE ILLINOIS STATE FIRE MARSHAL’S OFFICE IS STRESSING THE IMPORTANCE OF COOKING SAFETY THIS THANKSGIVING. 

 

THANKSGIVING IS THE LEADING DAY FOR HOME FIRES INVOLVING COOKING EQUIPMENT. HERE’S A FEW SAFETY TIPS FROM FIRE MARSHAL SPOKESMAN J-C FULTZ.

 

 

IF YOU’RE FRYING YOUR TURKEY, FULTZ SAYS TO MAKE SURE YOU DO IT OUTSIDE AND DO NOT OVERFILL OIL IN THE FRYER. THE TURKEY SHOULD BE COMPLETELY THAWED AND DRY BEFORE PLACING IT IN THE FRYER.

 

 

FULTZ SAYS IF A FIRE BREAKS OUT IN THE OVEN, KEEP THE OVEN DOOR SHUT AND TURN OFF THE HEAT. SMALL FLAMES IN A PAN CAN BE SMOTHERED BY SLIDING A LID ON TOP.
