Thanksgiving is here and Community Ambulance has the kitchen safety tips for you
The holidays are for family get togethers not hospital visits
Henderson, November 21, 2022 – Thanksgiving is the time for a house full of friends and family but before breaking out the pots and pans and turkey and stuffing, Community Ambulance has some helpful kitchen tips while cooking away. Check all your CO monitors and smoke detectors in the house and make sure your first aid kit is fully stocked. Not sure what should be in your first aid kit? You can buy a fully stocked kit at most stores or you can build your own.
With young ones running around, make sure to keep an eye on them at all times especially if they’re in the kitchen with you, keep cords and other safety hazards out of reach of children, and don’t let them near exposed outlets. With all your friends and family around it’s best to set a timer for anything in the oven to ensure no overcooked turkey or desserts!
While using the stove watch out for splatters to avoid burns, but if you do get burned make sure to keep calm. Cool the burn with cool or lukewarm water for 20 minutes as close to the initial incident as possible and never use ice, ice water, creams or greasy substances. Remember, if any injury is bad enough, call 911.
