Warming hearts on Thanksgiving Day instead of feeling the burn.

Warming hearts on Thanksgiving Day instead of feeling the burn.


Many accidents that occur during the holidays can be avoided with a few simple steps. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) provides a good list of anti-fire safety tips that can be taken advantage of Thanksgiving Day and Christmas.


Thanksgiving is the peak day for home cooking fires, followed by Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Cooking equipment was involved in 18% of home decoration fires. This happens when a decoration is left on or too close to a stove or other cooking equipment.


Here is a great list to follow to avoid an emergency situation:

  • Remain in the kitchen when when stove top or oven is on.
  • Stay in the home when cooking a meal, check on it frequently.
  • Keep small children away from the kitchen, period!
  • Pick up items on the floor to avoid tripping or slipping.
  • Keep all knives (electric too) out of the reach of children. 
  • Put matches and utility lighters out of the reach of children.
  • Never, ever leave children alone in room with a lit candle.
  • Make sure your smoke alarms are working prior to the event, especially if something does happen and a fire breaks out. 


Planning ahead and setting the rules early on creates a wonderful holiday experience spent together. Though accidents can still happen, especially with children or the elderly present, the risk is taken down considerably.


Happy Thanksgiving all. May you be surrounded by loved ones, eat a nourishing meal and remain ever grateful for all of life's blessings.

Great advice - and I thought that this was going to be about leaving politics outside the dining room!

Good morning Wanda.  As I'm making this comment the pumpkin pie is almost done, next the turkey and afterward all the other stuff my wife will make when she gets up for us to enjoy this afternoon.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your Family, Wanda Kubat-Nerdin ! Here in the South, since folks decided to deep fry their birds, we always have many serious fires , often with major human injuries from the grease. I still can't figure out why folks want to fry their birds in motor oil.

Those rules should be framed and posted in every kitchen in America. Children should never be left alone. I've lived through many home and hotel fires and it's the most devasting thing a person can experience.
