We know holiday season can be overwhelming.
As you gather to celebrate Thanksgiving with your friends and family, we at iDARE family want you to also have injury-free and staying safe throughout the holiday. We want you to always practice safe cooking habits. Thanksgiving is the peak day for home cooking fires.
An estimated 2,000 Thanksgiving Day fires in residential buildings occur annually in the United States*, resulting in an estimated average of five deaths, 25 injuries, and $21 million in property loss each year. The leading cause of all Thanksgiving Day fires in residential buildings is cooking. In addition, these fires occur most frequently in the afternoon hours from noon to 4 p.m. And unfortunately, smoke alarms were not present in 20 percent of Thanksgiving Day fires that occurred in occupied residential buildings.
