The Danbury Fire Department is reminding residents that kitchen safety is important, especially on Thanksgiving Day when there is a lot of activity going on. Some of the safety tips the department is highlighting include being home when cooking the turkey, keeping an eye on food cooked on the stove top and making sure smoke alarms are working. The Danbury Fire Department also urged parents to keep kids away from the stove, from knives and from matches. They also cautioned that the steam or splash from vegetables, gravy or coffee could cause serious burns. Homeowners should also be sure electric cords from an electric knife, coffee maker, plate warmer or mixer are not dangling off the counter within easy reach of a child.
