Next Thursday family and friends will gather for fellowship and food as they give thanks for the blessings of the harvest. For many, Thanksgiving is a time of celebration. While meals are being planned and guest lists fine-tuned, fire safety precautions should be reviewed. Thanksgiving is the leading day of the year for home fires involving cooking equipment.

The fire service can remind the public about fire safe practices in the kitchen all holiday season long with NFPA’s tool kit on cooking safety. The tool kit has everything needed to launch a cooking safety campaign in your community, including talking points, outreach ideas, videos, press releases, a checklist, and fact sheet.

Community tool kits on other fire safety topics are available on the NFPA website to help keep residents safe and sound.
