Thanksgiving is the number 1 day in the United States for home cooking fires. Unattended cooking is a leading cause; but some fires start because of the cooking equipment that is being used. Here are some tips to keep you safe and sound this season.

As you begin to prep for the tastiest holiday, keep these tips in mind:

-       Stay in your home while cooking your turkey

-       Keep children away from stoves and ovens

-       Be aware of steam and splashes caused by hot dishes

-       Make sure your smoke alarms are working

 

Even if you’ve taken precaution it could be the defective product or someone else’s negligence that leads to a fire. If you find yourself in a situation over Thanksgiving the team at Breen Goril Law is here to help. We’ll be enjoying the holiday on Thursday and Friday and will resume regular hours on Monday, November 26.
