Tennessee State Fire Marshal’s Office gives Safety Tips for the Turkey Fryer

 

Tennessee State Fire MarshalNashville, TN – Thanksgiving is a time for families and friends to gather and enjoy a festive day of good food and thanks.

Thanksgiving cooks should be aware of Turkey Fryers’ risks says Tennessee State Fire Marshal

 

Tennessee State Fire MarshalNashville, TN – Outdoor, gas-fueled fryers cook up juicy turkeys in a fraction of the time it takes to roast one in an indoor oven.

“Outdoor fryers heat gallons of cooking oil to very high temperatures to cook the turkey. The risk of this oil being spilled is significant, and the resulting injuries can be severe,” State Fire Marshal and Commerce & Insurance Commissioner Julie Mix McPeak says.
