For many families, Thanksgiving is a chance to gather together around a delicious feast. However, cooking turkeys and various side dishes, and having many people in the house, increase the chances of a fire. Luckily, many of these dangers can be prevented with a few essential safety precautions. CenturyLink® Security, a provider of advanced fire systems in Monroe, LA, has a few tips for making your holiday as safe as possible.

Ways to prevent fires on Thanksgiving

1. Monitor food

Thanksgiving is hectic, often requiring you to prepare several dishes at once. However, no matter how busy you get, never leave food on the stove unattended, as this could quickly turn into a fire. If you have to step out of the kitchen, have someone watch the food for you or turn the stove off.

2. Keep flammable items away from the stove

However, it only takes a moment for a burner to set a towel or oven mitt on fire. To avoid this, keep your working area free of cloth, loose clothing, and anything else that can burn.

3. Check your fire safety equipment

If a disaster does occur, having a working extinguisher and an advanced fire system can save lives and keep flames from spreading. Before Thanksgiving, make sure you have a fire extinguisher available in the kitchen and change all the batteries in your smoke detectors. For maximum safety, invest in an advanced fire system from CenturyLink with cutting-edge detection technology and real-time digital monitoring.
