Tennessee State Fire Marshal asks Thanksgiving cooks to be aware of Turkey Fryers’ risks

 

Fires, burns make them perilous for the home

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. However, the State Fire Marshal’s Office is joining the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) in discouraging the residential use of outdoor gas-fueled turkey fryers because they pose an enormous risk for injury.

“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.

Oil splatters out of a fryer, causing a burst of smoke and flames that can easily burn a house, or even worse, an adult or child.

Tennessee Department of HealthNashville, TN – If your Thanksgiving plans include lifting weights for 10 hours or going for a seven-hour run after dinner, enjoy your meal without worries.

But if you plan to linger around the table and take a nap or spend time on the sofa after eating, your future might hold glucose meters and insulin injections, both part of life for Tennessee’s growing number of individuals with diabetes. While blood sugar testing and shots may not seem too difficult to handle, blindness, kidney failure and loss of limbs are the serious consequences for some who develop diabetes. «Read the rest of this article»
