Most Americans don't think of Thanksgiving as being a particularly dangerous holiday. But the reality is, when you have a house full of people rushing around with ovens and stovetops running all day, accidents are bound to happen.
Fire, smoke, injuries and other household emergencies are extremely common on Thanksgiving Day, especially those involving children. But most of these accidents are easily preventable.
Use these tips from the National Fire Protection Association to ensure that your family can enjoy a full day of food and family, without having to call 9-1-1.
Keep in mind, these common dangers occur entirely inside the home. Another serious Thanksgiving danger happens on the road as millions of people travel across the United States. In fact, when it comes to highway accidents, Thanksgiving is one of the most dangerous holidays. So whatever your plans are for Thanksgiving this year, please be careful, take your time and always consider the safety of those around you.
