FWFD Reminds You to Cook Safely

FORT WAYNE, IND., November 24, 2014 – The Fort Wayne Fire Department is reminding you to keep safety
in mind as holiday meals are being prepared. It can be easy to get wrapped up in entertaining guests, but it is
important to monitor meal preparation closely.

Home cooking fires are three times more likely to occur on Thanksgiving than on any other day of the year.
With most cooking fires starting because cooking has been left unattended, the Fort Wayne Fire Department
urges you to stay in the kitchen or other food cooking areas (e.g., outside for deep fryer, grill), and follow these
safety tips during meal preparation.

Deep fryer safety:
The deep-frying process requires that up to five gallons of oil be heated before placing the turkey into the
device. Some available turkey fryers are not sturdy and can easily tip over, allowing hot oil to spill, creating a
serious risk of fire or scalding. Some fryers are also prone to overheating which can lead to hot oil splattering
outside the fryer.
