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.


Thanksgiving Meals

If you are looking for somewhere to have a Thanksgiving meal, a few area churches are sponsoring holiday events.  Immanuel-Trinity Church on Wisconsin-American Drive will be hosting their 16th Annual Thanksgiving from 11:30am to 1:30pm today.  Meals will be served on-site but carryouts will be available.  They are also offering a free shuttle from Church of Our Savior at 9th and Main at 11am and Rosalind Apartments at 11:30am.  
Gateway Community Church in Mayville will be hosting the eighteenth annual Free Thanksgiving Dinner. The meal will be served at the Mayville High School Cafeteria, 500 North Clark Street, at noon.  The meal is free and open to the public.


Thanksgiving Costs

The cost of putting Thanksgiving dinner on the table will be lower in Wisconsin than the national average, according to Amy Manske with the state Farm Bureau. She says it comes out to 48-dollars and 40 cents here.  The Wisconsin price for an average Thanksgiving dinner is 65-cents cheaper than it is nationally. The cost is about 1% less than the last year’s national average


Family Safety

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.
