Follow these turkey frying safety tips to keep your Thanksgiving Day feast one that emergency personnel never have to visit!
Thanksgiving Day is one of the busiest days for firefighters. Go figure that with millions of households elbow deep in mixing stuffing, mashed potatoes, roasting turkeys, and browning marshmallows for their sweet potato casserole, kitchen accidents and fires drive up the call for emergency personnel.
