Thanksgiving Fire Safety
Tuesday, November 15, 2022

Thanksgiving is right around the corner and the Ocean Pines Volunteer Fire Department would like to remind you about some very important Thanksgiving Fire Facts (Source: NFPA Applied Research)

  • 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. 
  • Unattended cooking was by far the leading contributing factor in cooking fires and fire deaths.
  • Cooking causes 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).
