Thanksgiving Safety, Nov 10, 2016 

A safety flyer with tips for Thanksgiving, featuring two people looking at a pie, and a sidebar with "Did you know?" trivia.
  • Stay in the kitchen when you are cooking on the
    stovetop so you can keep an eye on the food.
  • Stay in the home when cooking your turkey and check
    on it frequently.
  • Keep children away from the stove. The stove will be
    hot and kids should stay 3 feet away.
  • Make sure kids stay away from hot food and liquids.
    The steam or splash from vegetables, gravy or coffee
    could cause serious burns.
  • Keep the floor clear so you don’t trip over kids, toys,
    pocketbooks or bags.
  • Keep knives out of the reach of children.
  • Be sure electric cords from an electric knife, coffee
    maker, plate warmer or mixer are not dangling off the
    counter within easy reach of a child.
  • Keep matches and utility lighters out of the reach of
    children — up high in a locked cabinet.
  • Never leave children alone in room with a lit candle.
  • Make sure your smoke alarms are working. Test them
    by pushing the test button.
