Thanksgiving Safety Tips

The US Fire administration claims that more than 4,000 fires happen each Thanksgiving Day. In order to help you avoid being one of the statistics, we found this article from Atlantic Training with tips on keep you and your loved ones safe while feasting at Thanksgiving.

– Never leave food unattended & if deep-frying, keep the fryer outside and away from walls & free from moisture

– Avoid fresh, stuffed turkeys. Buy your turkey a few days before you cook it and keep it in the fridge. If you happen upon a deal that is a week or so before, put the turkey in the freezer

– Properly defrost your turkey by keeping it in the fridge (every 4lbs needs 1 day to thaw), submerge turkey in cold water being sure to change the water every 30min, or use a microwave safe dish and follow the manufacturer’s instructions for thawing.

– Don’t pre-stuff your turkey, cook the stuffing/dressing separately to cut down on food poisoning.

– Leftovers can be safely eaten (if put away properly) for up to 3 days in the fridge. Or they can be frozen (if able to be frozen).
