Happy Thanksgiving

We at SERVPRO of North Garland would like to wish everyone a Happt Thanksgiving! 

 Thanksgiving is a day to enjoy football, food, friends and family.  Most importantly it is a day for us to give thanks for the people and blessings that fill our lives.  While Thanksgiving traditions vary between families, the turkey is the centerpiece of each and every home during the holiday.

 With that in mind, if you decide to deep-fry your turkey, keep your family and house safe this Thanksgiving with these safe cooking tips.

Always use a turkey fryer outside, away from buildings or other flammable materials

Never use it on wooden decks or in garages

 Make sure the fryer is on flat ground before using to reduce the chance of tipping

 Never leave the fryer alone.  Most units lack thermostats, meaning an unwatched fryer will continue to heat until it bursts into flames

 Keep children and pets away from the fryer, even after you're done cooking, since the oil can remain hot for hours

 Don't overfill the fryer

 Use well-insulated potholders or oven mitts when touching pot or lid handles.  It is also recommended to wear safety goggles to avoid splatter

 Only cook a completely thawed turkey and be careful with marinades.  Oil and water don't mix, water could make the oil spill over, creating a fire or explosion

 If a fire does start, never use water to extinguish it.  If the fire is manageable, use an all-purpose fire extinguisher. 

 If the fire grows, immediately call 9-1-1
