Holiday Safety Tips
11/6/2014

Across the country, Thanksgiving is the leading day of the year for home fires caused by cooking equipment. As family and friends come together to celebrate Thanksgiving this year, Albemarle County Fire Rescue would like to take this opportunity to remind everyone to make safety one of your top priorities:

  • Never leave anything cooking on the stovetop unattended.
  • Make sure children are watched carefully and kept at least 3 feet away from the hot stove.
  • As food gets hot, steam or a splash from vegetables, gravy, or other hot liquids will cause serious burns.
  • Keep matches and lighters stored safely away from children locked in a high cabinet.
  • When your Smoke Alarm Sounds, Don’t stick Around
