Fire Damage Safety First Before the Feast Let SERVPRO of Toms River restore your kitchen along with your peace of mind.

Every Thanksgiving, family and friends get together to celebrate by cooking a huge feast. Safe cooking should be a habit practiced at Thanksgiving and every other gathering because cooking fires are the leading cause of residential fires, according to the National Fire Protection Association

Follow these simple steps to help reduce the risk of a cooking fire:

  1. Never leave anything unattended while cooking. 
  2. Use a timer as a reminder that there is something cooking.
  3. Keep children away from all cooking areas. At least three feet is usually a good, safe distance. 
  4. Keep all flammable items away from anything that generates heat.
  5. Avoid your clothing from catching fire around flames if wearing loose clothing.
  6. Have a working fire extinguisher nearby and know how to work it in case of an emergency.
  7. Check to make sure smoke and fire detectors are working properly.

If the unthinkable happens and a fire strikes, call your local fire damage experts at SERVPRO of Toms River. We will help you make it "Like it never even happened."
