11/20/10  It's that time of year again. With the holidays fast approaching, there will be a lot of cooking going on. Please remember to cook safely, not only now, but year round. One very popular way to prepare a holiday meal, is deep frying a turkey. Done improperly, this can be very dangerous. The National Fire Protection Association says deep fryer fires cause an average of five deaths, 60 injuries, and more than $15 million in property damage each year. Here are some safety tips to remember....

  1. Make sure to always use your deep fryer outdoors and away from any flammable objects. Keep a safe distance from buildings, garages, and porches that can ignite quickly. The extremely hot oil may splatter and burn objects around it.
  2. Always wear long heat resistant gloves, long sleeved shirt or apron, and safety goggles when possible. Once the oil reaches the desired temperature, carefully lower your Turkey into the oil while wearing complete protection.
  3. Most importantly, never drop a frozen turkey into hot oil, and make sure you completely dry the turkey, inside and out, before you lower it into the hot oil. It is vital you make sure both the outside and the cavity are free from any sort of moisture. A leading cause of kitchen fires is water being added to hot or boiling oil. Water, being heavier than oil, sinks to the bottom and immediately boils into steam. The steam quickly expands and forces its way up to the top, acting like a volcano and splattering burning oil everywhere. In the event splattered oil catches fire, and possibly spreads to objects around it, make sure you do NOT spray water on it, as it will only encourage the flames.
  4. To avoid oil spillover, do not overfill the fryer. To test how much oil is needed, place your turkey in the empty frying pan, and fill it with water to completely cover the bird. Remove the turkey and mark the water line. This will be the level of oil you want to use. Make sure you allow at least six inches for expansion and splatter. Completely dry the fryer before adding oil.
  5. Make sure you have an all purpose fire extinguisher on hand. In the event of a fire, never use water to try to put it out, and call 9-1-1 immediately.
  6. Be sure to keep children & pets away from the fryer.

Everyone here at Dewey and Ridgeway wishes you a very happy and safe holiday season.

Team leaders issued those deployments, and team leaders kept in communication with one another to ensure task completion. One CERT Team leader was chosen to serve as the Blue Cross Arena Incident Commander. CERT once again accomplished this entire task and did a commendable job. Click here to see the news release.
