Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, we’ve all been spending quite a bit more time in our kitchens this year. But with this extra time spent cooking at home has also come a boost in kitchen-related house fires.
Coming up on the Thanksgiving holiday this week, it’s more important than ever to be mindful of the fire hazards associated with the holiday, and of the potential additional fire hazards that 2020 could bring as many Americans amend the way they’re celebrating amid the pandemic.
The CDC has released guidelines on how to safety spend your Thanksgiving holiday, as have other organizations aimed at ensuring public safety. These guidelines are helpful for preventing the spread of the virus but can also pose some new fire safety issues.
Be safe and be prepared this holiday season. Consider these potential fire safety hazards as you prepare for this Thanksgiving holiday, whether you’re cooking for just you or a group of people.
