Happy Thanksgiving!

If you are planning to deep-fry your Thanksgiving turkey, the Big Bear City Fire Department offers a how-to online video, wherein firefighters demonstrate the safe and proper way to deep fry. The most crucial safety tips are to be sure that the fryer is placed on a non-combustible surface, and not on decks or near trees, though all deep frying should be done outside. Prior to deep frying, turkeys must be defrosted and patted dry, and free from all water. If a fire does occur, call 911 and use a fire extinguisher—do not use water—to put out any fire.
