- Always stay in the kitchen when the stovetop is on cooking on. Overboils and grease fires can happen in an instant.
- Stay home when cooking your turkey, and check on it frequently. Avoid the temptation to do a quick errand while the bird roasts.
- Warn children that the stove is on and that they should stay at least three feet away.
- Warn children about the hot foods that are placed on the table and counters as well. The steam or splashes from hot liquids can cause serious burns.
- Remember to keep knives out of the reach of small children.
- Keep electric cords from an electric knife, coffee maker, plate warmer or mixer out of the way and out of easy reach of children.
- Keep matches and utility lighters away and out of the reach of children.
- Be aware of lit candles and never leave children alone in a room with a lit candle.
- Keep floors clear so as not to trip while carrying hot foods or sharp objects.
- Check your smoke alarms and the batteries to ensure they are in working order.
