Noble Public Adjusting Group Offers Thanksgiving Day Fire Prevention Tips
For Immediate Release
November 25, 2015
Noble Public Adjusting Group (Noble) today announces tips to prevent potentially devastating fire hazards on Thanksgiving.
“Our chief concern this Thanksgiving is that families practice safe cooking practices,” said Noble CEO Bo Williamson. “If your belly is focused on a deep-fried turkey dinner, take the proper precautions to ensure your home is protected from fire hazards.”
According to a recent report published by the U.S. Fire Administration, for each year from 2011 to 2013, an estimated 2,100 residential building fires were reported to fire departments in the U.S. on Thanksgiving Day and caused an estimated 10 deaths, 50 injuries and $28 million in property loss. The average number of reported residential fires on Thanksgiving Day was more than double (2.1 times more) the average number of fires in residential buildings on all days other than Thanksgiving.
If you plan to deep-fry your holiday bird, be sure you know how to safely use the fryer, and take these precautions to protect yourself, your guests, and your home:
· Keep outdoor fryers off decks, out of garages, and a safe distance away from other structures.
· Never leave fryers unattended.
· Turn off the burner before lowering the turkey into the oil. Once the turkey is submerged, turn the burner on.
· Wear goggles and keep a grease-rated fire extinguisher nearby.
· Follow the manufacturer’s instructions to avoid overfilling.
