Stay Safe This Thanksgiving

Post Date:11/26/2019 1:12 PM


Thanksgiving is three days away and the Peoria Fire-Medical Department has tips to keep you safe this year:


  • Keep young children at least three feet from the stove and turn pot and pan handles inward.
  • Keep an eye on your food while you cook. Cooking a turkey overnight is not recommended.
  • Check your smoke detectors and batteries.
  • If you're frying your turkey, be sure the turkey is completely thawed and dry before placing in a fryer. Do not over fill the fryer and choose a level space outdoors.
