Maybe you thought you were being perfectly safe with that turkey fryer. After all, you put it outside, on concrete, and away from any flammable material. And maybe you watched as this seemingly safe setup still went awry, and the flame from the fryer ignited a leak in the hose from the propane tank to the burner. And maybe you thanked your lucky stars and all the smart propane tank designers that you and all your Thanksgiving guests didn’t ignite in a fiery and delicious inferno that day.
Not all of us have had a brush with death on Thanksgiving to make us think twice about our Turkey Day Safety. But luckily, not all of us need that kind of wakeup call. Here’s how to keep you and your family safe this Thanksgiving.
