Eureka Firefighters are planning a fill the boot for Backstoppers this Holiday Season.
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.

Have a Safe Holiday!
There is something about the winter months and curling up
with a good book by the fireplace. But did you know that heating
equipment is a leading cause of home fire deaths? With a few simple safety tips and precautions you can prevent most heating fires from happening.
Heating Equipment Smarts
Install wood burning stoves following
manufacturer’s instructions or have a professional do the
installation. All fuel-burning equipment should be vented
to the outside to avoid carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning.
If you smell gas in your gas heater, do not light the
appliance. Leave the home immediately
and call your local fire department or gas company.
The Dangers of Carbon Monoxide
Install at least one carbon monoxide alarm with an audible warning signal near the sleeping areas and outside individual bedrooms. Make sure the alarm has been evaluated by a nationally recognized laboratory, such as Underwriters Laboratories (UL). Carbon monoxide alarms measure levels of CO over time and are designed to sound an alarm before an average, healthy adult would experience symptoms. It is very possible that you may not be experiencing symptoms when you hear the alarm. This does not mean that CO is not present.
Have a qualified professional check all fuel burning appliances, furnaces, venting and chimney systems at least once a year.
Never use your range or oven to help heat your home and never use a charcoal grill or hibachi in your home or garage.
Never keep a car running in a garage. Even if the garage doors are open, normal circulation will not provide enough fresh air to reliably prevent a dangerous buildup of CO.
When purchasing an existing home, have a qualified technician evaluate the integrity of the heating and cooking systems, as well as the sealed spaces between the garage and house. The presence of a carbon monoxide alarm in your home can save your life in the event of CO buildup.

Have you ever thought about how you will communicate with and locate your loved ones in the event of a disaster? You never know where you will be or with whom you will be when a disaster strikes. This week, the focus for National Preparedness Month is, “How to Reconnect with Family After a Disaster.” Use this time to build a family communications plan. Your priority will be to get to a safe place, contact your loved ones and reunite with them as soon as possible. The best course of action is to have a plan for each of the common locations where you spend most of your time – home, work, gym, or place of worship.
Below are some tips on how to get in contact with your loved ones in an emergency.
Check out America’s PrepareAthon! to participate in other drills and exercises with your family, and practice the communications plan you just developed as part of National Preparedness Month.
