Dangers of Turkey Fryers

Happy Thanksgiving Eve! Please be careful in the kitchen as you prepare those incredible feasts.

Thanksgiving fire facts:

Thanksgiving is the peak day for home cooking fires with more than three times the daily average for such incidents. Christmas Day and Christmas Eve ranked second and third, with both having nearly twice the daily average.

In 2019, U.S. fire departments responded to an estimated 1,400 home cooking fires on Thanksgiving, the peak day for such fires.

Unattended cooking was by far the leading contributing factor in cooking fires and fire deaths.
Cooking caused half (49 percent) of all reported home fires and more than two of every five (42 percent) home fire injuries, and it is the second leading cause of home fire deaths (20 percent) in 2015-2019.

And if you plan on deep frying your turkey remember to follow all manufacture safety precautions.

Our Halls are Decked here at Station 6! This coming weekend is traditionally one where people decorate their homes, so it seems like a good time to pass on some safety tips.

- Check all holiday light cords to ensure they aren’t frayed or broken. For exterior decorations only extension cords that are rated for outdoor use.

- Don’t string too many strands of lights together — no more than three per extension cord (check manufacturer recommendations). Unplug the strand of lights when replacing burned out or broken bulbs.

- Ensure outside decorations are for outdoor use and fasten lights securely to your home or trees. If using hooks or nails outside, make sure they are insulated to avoid an electrocution or fire hazard.

- If buying an artificial tree, look for the fire-resistant label. When putting it up, keep it away from fireplaces, radiators and other sources of heat. Never use electric lights on metallic trees.

- If using a ladder, be extra careful. Make sure to have good, stable placement and wear shoes that allow for good traction.

- Turn off all holiday lights when going to bed or leaving the house. Use timers both inside and outside.

Stay safe out there while you are getting your house Santa ready!

Santa rides again! On Friday, December 3rd Santa and crew will leave Station 22 riding through the Belmont and Lansdowne areas. Then on Saturday, December 4th, he will leave Station 6 riding through the greater Ashburn area. Maps are attached with turn by turn directions. Unfortunately we cannot give exact times due to traffic and weather conditions. We will however, be using the Glympse Navigation App to share our location through the night. Come out and give us a wave!

Maps are available on the website, and they will be available at the tree sales lot as well.

This week is National Teens “Don’t Text and Drive” Week. It’s a perfect time to educate your teen drivers about the dangers of texting while driving and the consequences with the new law that went into effect as of January 1, 2021.

“It is unlawful for anyone to text while driving in the state of Virginia. Texting while driving is considered a primary offense, meaning that a police officer can pull someone over for texting while driving, even if they have committed no other violations or broken any other laws.”

Set a good example for your teens by putting your phone down and away. Remember that any form of distracted driving can have the same effect - fiddling with the radio, eating, putting on makeup or anything that pulls your attention away from focusing on the road.

Stop the texts, Stop the wrecks.

This week, AVFRD sent 8 members to the Virginia EMS Symposium in Norfolk. During the 4-day event held by the Virginia Office of Emergency Medical Services, members took classes in leadership, learned about emerging trends in EMS, and networked with other providers from around Virginia. 

Our members are excited to bring what they've learned back to Ashburn to help grow the knowledge and skills of our providers.

Happy Halloween!! Here are some tips for a safe night:

- Use a battery-operated candle or glow stick in jack-o-lanterns.

- When choosing costumes, stay away from long trailing fabric.

- Teach children to stay away from open flames, including jack-o-lanterns with candles in them.

- Dried flowers, cornstalks, and crepe paper catch fire easily. Keep all decorations away from open flames and other heat sources like light bulbs and heaters.

- Provide children with flashlights to carry for lighting or glow sticks as part of their costume.

- Remember to keep exits clear of decorations so nothing blocks escape routes. Make sure all smoke alarms are working.

- And as always, look both ways before crossing streets and travel in groups.

Be safe!
