Stay Safe This Thanksgiving With These Safety Tips

Happy Thanksgiving from VantagePlus Insurance! While enjoying all the festivities and family time this holiday is it vital that you know how to safe! If you are trying something new and cooking a turkey in a deep fryer, keep these Thanksgiving safety tips in mind to ensure that everyone stays safe and enjoys a delicious holiday dinner.

  • Never overfill the fryer pot – if there is too much oil in the fryer, the oil will likely spill out when the turkey is lowered in. The overflowing oil can easily start a fire. Make sure to read the owner’s manual before dropping in the turkey to ensure that you have the right amount of oil.
  • Completely thaw out your turkey – a frozen or partially frozen turkey can cause the oil to bubble over and start a fire or burn anyone who is near the pot.
  • Keep the fryer away from any structures – when placing your fryer, make sure that it is far away from any structures, such as your garage or patio. Also, make sure not to place the fryer on any wooden structure to prevent a fire.
  • Keep water out of the fryer – hot oil and water causes bubbles that pop and spray hot oil. Never use water to cool down the oil or to put out an oil fire. Make sure that you have a fire extinguisher that is approved for oil fires to put any out.
  • Never leave the fryer unattended – even before the turkey is put in, stay present so that you are ready in case of an accident.
