Thanksgiving is around the corner which means travel, crowds, eating, family, and more eating. What needs to go with all the festivities is how to get through the holiday safely.
Thanksgiving and turkey go hand in hand but proper handling of the bird is important for the safety of your family. According to the New Hackensack Fire Department, to avoid the growth of bacteria, never thaw a turkey at room temperature instead thaw it in the refrigerator in it's own unopened wrapper on a tray with the breast facing up. It should take about one day of refrigerator thawing for every four pounds of turkey, so you better start soon.
Thanksgiving is the leading day for cooking fires, according to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). In 2007, firefighters responded to roughly 1,300 home fire involving cooking, three times the daily average, according to the NFPA.
"Incorporating fire safety into your holiday preparations can mean the difference between putting on a fantastic holiday feast for family and friends or having to call the fire department to put out a fire,: said NFPA's Vice President of Communications Lorraine Carli.
If decorating with candles, never leave them burning in an unattended room.

During the spring and summer months in the St. Louis Area, we have many days of high temperatures, strong winds, and low humidity. These factors and intermittent rainfall can lead to dangerous grass and brush fires.
Per Missouri Department of Natural Resources Regulations-
St. Louis Metropolitan Area: Open burning of trees, tree leaves or brush is allowed only in areas outside of incorporated municipalities from Sept. 16 to April 14 of each calendar year. These brush piles are limited to a base of 16 square feet and the burning is allowed from 10 a.m. through 4 p.m..
We always ask that Eureka Fire Protection District residents contact Engine House 1 at 636-938-5505 before burning so we may know about it first. Eureka Fire Protection District does not issue burn or bonfire permits, but we may advise you not to burn at any particular time due to conditions.

If you need medical assistance during a disaster, paramedics and other professional responders may not be immediately available, and hospitals and clinics may not be accessible. That’s why it’s important to keep medical records, supplies and prescriptions easily accessible and to learn simple first aid techniques. Creating a “stay healthy” kit will help you to manage minor medical needs until help arrives. Your kit should include:
If your medicine requires refrigeration and the power goes out, most medicines can be kept in a closed refrigerator for several hours and still be safe to use. Be sure to contact your doctor or pharmacist if you have questions about your medication.
As with other hazards, there are specific steps that you can take before and during an influenza pandemic to protect yourself and your loved ones.
