Deep Fryer Dangers

Turkey fryer tips

Thinking about what to prepare for your holiday feast? If your menu plans include deep frying a turkey, theres important safety information to keep in mind.

According to the U.S. Fire Administration (USFA), Thanksgiving is the peak day for home cooking fires. Keep your festivities from going up in flames; only use turkey fryers outdoors.

 

USFA wants to remind you of the dangers that exist when deep frying a turkey, including:

  • Turkey fryers can easily tip over, spilling hot cooking oil over a large area;
  • A partially frozen turkey will cause cooking oil to splatter when put in the pot;
  • Even a small amount of cooking oil spilling on a hot burner can cause a large fire; and
  • The sides of the cooking pot, lid, and pot handles can get dangerously hot.

Heating Your Home Safely

Heat safety

As winter weather moves in, many people use fireplaces, space heaters, and other fuel-fired equipment to warm their homes. While alternative heating sources can make your home cozy, using them increases your risk of a home fire.

 

According to the U.S. Fire Administration (USFA), heating is the second leading cause of home fires following cooking.


Taking simple steps can prevent a fire from happening in your home. The National Fire Protection Association and USFA offer these heating safety tips, including: 

  • Keep anything that can burn at least three feet away from a fireplace, wood stove, or space heater; 
  • Make sure the fireplace has a sturdy screen to stop sparks from flying into the room;  
  • Always use the right kind of fuel, specified by the manufacturer, for fuel-burning space heaters; and 
  • Remember to turn portable heaters off when leaving the room or going to bed.

For more ways to have a fire-safe home when the mercury dips, check out this USFA resource guide to share with family and friends.
