According to NFPA, cooking fires are more likely to occur on Thanksgiving Day than any other day of the year. More than 4,000 fires occur nationwide on this holiday!
However, don’t forget to practice cooking safety not only at the holidays, but year-round.
20,000 of the nations 30,200 fire departments are all-volunteer. Of the 118 firefighters who died in the line of duty in 2007, 68 were volunteers. Help keep our firefighters out of harm’s way.
