5 Safety Tips for Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving Day is a day to enjoy great food surrounded by close family and friends. However, it can be one of the most dangerous days of the year if proper safety precautions are not in place. According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), Thanksgiving is the peak day for home cooking fires.  Florida Peninsula Insurance Company’s number one priority is the safety of you and your family. As such, we would like to provide you with the following safety tips for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.

  • Unattended cooking is the number one cause of fires. An adult should always be in the kitchen while cooking your Thanksgiving meal.
  • Keep children and pets away from the stove, hot foods, and liquids.
  • Make sure your kitchen floor is clear of any tripping or slipping hazards.
  • Cook your turkey and other hot meals to their correct temperatures.
  • Consume or freeze leftovers within 3 to 4 days of your Thanksgiving meal.

We hope you have a happy and safe Thanksgiving Day with your loved ones. For more Thanksgiving safety tips, click here.

We all love our furry friends and over time they become a part of the family. But we can’t forget our pets are still animals who sometimes cannot control their behavior. The American Veterinary Medical Association states there are nearly 85 million dogs living in U.S. households. About 4.5 million people are bitten by dogs each year, most of them are children. To protect your pet and those around them, you should consider obtaining animal liability coverage.
