FDL Fire Chief Gives Fire Safety Tips For The Kitchen
Fond du Lac Fire Chief Peter O’Leary is passing along some tips to prevent fires in the kitchen during Thanksgiving. He says there are more fires on Thanksgiving than anytime of year. Many of the tips he offers are just common sense, but things people don’t think about in a busy kitchen. He says you should limit the number of people in the kitchen, keep pot handles turned inward, make sure there’s nothing else in the oven when you turn it on and take your time cooking. He also recommends keeping oven mitts and hot pads or anything else that might burn off glass-topped stoves. O’Leary says people sometimes forget to shut off the oven top. He says if you do run into a problem give them a call.

As you head out to Thanksgiving events today be sure to stay safe if you are in a rural area and head outside. Officer Steve Olson of the Fond du Lac Police Department says that you decide to take a walk in the woods or just around some land, it would be a good idea to put on some sort of blaze orange so hunters can see you. Olson also says that it’s a good idea to put orange on your pets if they are outside so they don’t get mistaken for a deer.
