According to a study by FEMA, the average number of residential fires is more than double that on Thanksgiving than any other day. Thanksgiving is not just about indulging in delicious meals; it’s also a prime time to focus on home safety. With the kitchen being the heart of all Thanksgiving activities, it’s vital to implement safety measures to prevent accidents. Here’s how ACS’s products can contribute to a safer Thanksgiving.
Attentive Cooking: A Safety Priority
Staying alert while cooking is a cornerstone of home safety. When you’re frying, grilling or broiling, it’s essential to remain in the kitchen. ACS’s smart smoke detectors enhance safety by alerting you on your smartphone if smoke is detected, offering an extra layer of protection.
Child and Pet Home Safety
Children and pets can add unpredictability, especially in busy kitchens. Establishing a safety zone in your home, free from kids and pets, can prevent accidents. Utilize ACS’s indoor cameras to monitor these zones, ensuring that your home safety measures are effective.
Home Security During Festivities
During Thanksgiving, some areas of your home might be less attended to. Enhance your home with ACS’s smart locks and security systems, which provide real-time alerts and remote access to secure your home effectively.
Fire Safety at Home
Unattended cooking is a significant home safety risk. Always be present when your turkey is cooking and have a fire extinguisher handy. Linking ACS’s smart home system to your fire alarms can significantly boost your safety during Thanksgiving.
Organized Kitchen for Home Safety
A clutter-free kitchen is a safer kitchen. Keep your cooking space organized and clear of flammable items. ACS’s smart lighting solutions can improve visibility, contributing to overall home safety.
Ensuring Food Safety at Home
Food safety is a critical aspect of overall home safety. Using a food thermometer ensures your turkey is cooked to a safe temperature. ACS’s environmental sensors help in maintaining a safe kitchen environment, aligning with home safety standards.
Home Safety with Deep Fryers
If using a turkey fryer, operate it outside and away from your home. ACS’s outdoor cameras can assist in monitoring the fryer, ensuring it doesn’t pose a home safety risk.
Safe Storage of Leftovers
Home safety includes proper food storage. Store leftovers promptly to avoid spoilage. ACS’s smart thermostats help in maintaining optimal room temperatures for food safety at home.
Guest Safety in Your Home
Ensuring guest safety is a vital part of home safety during Thanksgiving. ACS’s security systems allow you to monitor entry points and ensure everyone’s safety at your home.
Home Safety Plans for Emergencies
Having an emergency plan is crucial for home safety. Ensure all guests are aware of exit points and emergency procedures. ACS’s systems can facilitate a swift and safe evacuation if needed.
