SERVPRO of North Oklahoma City offers cooking safety tips
November is here and with it comes some of our favorite things. We hear at SERVPRO of North Oklahoma City love the smell of pumpkin spice, leaves changing, warm fires and lots of turkey. November brings in the start of the holiday season and with that comes lots of cooking and time spent in the kitchen. According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), Thanksgiving is the peak day for home cooking fires, followed by the day before Thanksgiving, Christmas Day and Christmas Eve. Fire departments responded to an estimated 1,760 home cooking fires on Thanksgiving alone. Below are some easy steps everyone should follow to ensure a safe and enjoyable holiday season.
The NFPA recommends the following safety tips:
- Stay in the kitchen when you are cooking on the stovetop so you can keep an eye on the food.
- Stay in the home when cooking your turkey and check on it frequently.
- Keep children away from the stove. The stove will be hot and kids should stay 3 feet away.
- Be sure electric cords from an electric knife, coffee maker, plate warmer or mixer are not dangling off the counter within easy reach of a child.
- Keep matches and utility lighters out of the reach of children — up high in a locked cabinet.
- Never leave children alone in room with a lit candle.
- Make sure your smoke alarms are working. Test them by pushing the test button.

Our competition told the homeowners to call SERVPRO of North Oklahoma City. Upon arrival, we were notified that one of the home owners has severe health complications. We acted quickly to secure them a safe place to relocate to, and began work immediately. Our team worked long hours into the early morning to get a great start on the job.
