State Fire Marshal Urges Safety in the Kitchen this Thanksgiving
tn.gov/Peg Broadcasting News Wednesday November 22, 2017

As families prepare to gather for Thanksgiving Day feasts this Thursday, November 23, the State Fire Marshal?s Office (SFMO) reminds Tennesseans to incorporate good cooking safety habits into their plans in order to avoid a holiday home fire. Thanksgiving is the leading day of the year for home fires involving cooking equipment, with three times the average number. Here in the Volunteer State, 18 percent of reported home structure fires in 2016 involved cooking equipment. Those 2,021 fires resulted in 13 civilian fatalities, 54 civilian injuries, nine firefighter injuries and over $8 million of direct property damage according to the Tennessee Fire Incident Reporting System. "Careless cooking habits can lead to devastating fires," said State Fire Marshal and Commerce & Insurance Commissioner Julie Mix McPeak. "Because the excitement of a Thanksgiving get-together can lead to distractions for holiday cooks, we're urging Tennesseans to pay attention in the kitchen, and if using a turkey fryer, take all necessary safety precautions to protect yourself, your family, and your property."

This Thanksgiving holiday the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security, the Tennessee Highway Patrol, TDOT and multiple law enforcement partners have joined forces for the fifth annual "I-40 Challenge Drive to Zero Fatalities" traffic safety initiative. In Tennessee, the I-40 Challenge will consist of increased patrols from state police/ highway patrol agencies along the 455 mile stretch of interstate with troopers stationed every 20 miles. The beefed up enforcement starts on Wednesday, November 22 and continues through Sunday, November 26. But the increased patrol does not end at the state line. I-40 runs 2,555 miles through eight states including North Carolina, Tennessee, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California. In addition to the I-40 Challenge, the THP will also conduct its routine Thanksgiving holiday enforcement campaign across the state with numerous checkpoints. During last year's 120-hour holiday period there were 16 traffic fatalities. Three of the fatalities were a result of alcohol-impairment and four were unrestrained.
