Happy Thanksgiving from UAFD!!!!

November 23rd, 2017

The Upper Allen Twp.  Fire Department would like to wish everyone a Safe, Healthy, Happy Thanksgiving. 

The following is safety tips released by the UAFD so everyone can enjoy their Thanksgiving Day and remain safe!

 

As you prepare your holiday meal, please make sure you follow some simple safety tips.

  • Never leave cooking unattended in the kitchen.
  • Always keep children away from sources of fire.
  • Remove loose clothing before cooking and use oven mitts, not kitchen towels, to handle hot pots and pans.
  • Keep a large lid and baking soda nearby to smother stove-top fires, but never keep dish towels, wooden utensils or potholders near cooking surfaces.
  • Keep towels and other combustible items away from your heat source and ensure all countertop appliances are plugged directly into the wall outlet and that their cords are not discolored or cracked. Don’t use damaged appliances or extension cords even if they appear to be functioning properly.
  • Only use large deep fryers outside, away from your home and potentially flammable items and never in your garage or shed.
  • Don’t use a deep fryer on frozen food.
  • Never let children near a deep fryer, even when it’s not in use.
  • When placing food into a deep fryer, use safety goggles and oven mitts.
  • Keep a fire extinguisher near the deep fryer and never use water to put out a fire.
  • Learn more about the dangers of deep fryers here.

While you are enjoying the holiday, remember to stay hydrated by drinking water. Get immediate medical care if you develop severe signs and symptoms like extreme thirst, a lack of urination, shriveled skin, dizziness or confusion.

When it’s time, make sure that you and your family feast safely:

  • Treat cuts by applying direct pressure with a clean dressing, and try to gently clean around the wound with bacterial soap and water, then keep the area around cuts dry and clean by applying a new dressing.
  • Make sure that everyone knows about potential allergens in the kitchen or meal before they eat your dishes.
  • Take a walk after eating to avoid food fatigue before you begin travelling, especially if you plan to drive.
  • Always remember – only call 911 in case of a real emergency.

Thanksgiving Home Cooking Safety Reminders!

November 22nd, 2017

Did you know Thanksgiving is the peak day for home cooking fires? The number of home fires double on Thanksgiving. So, let’s add a pinch of fire safety to the menu.

Keep these safety tips in mind as you prepare your meal.

Turkey:

If you are roasting your turkey, make sure you set a timer. This way, you won’t forget about the bird as you watch the parade or football.

If you are frying your turkey,

Use a fryer with thermostat controls. This will ensure the oil does not become over heated.
Thaw your turkey completely. Ice on the bird will cause the oil to splatter.
Don’t overfill the pot with oil. If you do, the oil will overflow when you add the turkey causing a fire hazard.
Keep children and pets at least three feet away from the fryer.
Also, always use the fryer outdoors.
