How to Secure the Safety of Your Home on Thanksgiving Day

11/7/2016 9:21 PM Comments Posted By Floralyn Teodoro
Whether you’re staying in or leaving your home on Thanksgiving Day, you have to secure its safety. Make an extra effort to free your home from accidents and opportunistic burglars.

During holidays like Thanksgiving Day, crimes such as home burglary, and accidents related to cooking significantly arise. With this fact, you should make an extra effort to safeguard your home and your family against potential holiday hazards.

If you leave your home to visit a friend’s or a relative’s home on Thanksgiving Day, your home has greater chances of being broken into by opportunistic burglars. However, if you are a Thanksgiving Day party host, your home can be at great risks of unfortunate cooking accidents.

To secure the safety of your home – whether you’re leaving or staying in it – on Thanksgiving Day, see below home and cooking safety guidelines:


When staying at home

In every holiday or festivity, cooking will always be involved. And, with cooking, home-cooking fires can happen. According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), three times as many cooking fires happen during Thanksgiving Day than other average days. Thanksgiving Day holds the number one spot regarding home-cooking fires.

To make sure you don’t add up to the home fire casualties on Thanksgiving Day, see below tips:

  • Never leave your pan unattended. Always keep an eye on what you’re cooking. If you really need to leave the kitchen to attend to something, turn off the stove before leaving.
  • Avoid wearing loose clothes when cooking. They can catch fire while you cook. Also, keep mitts, towels, curtains, wooden utensils, and other fire hazards away from the stove.
  • Always be alert every time you’re cooking. Keep your focus on the pan or the stove while you’re cooking. Even a short time of being distracted can lead to home-cooking fires.
  • Avoid using a glass casserole or lid. Glass utensils can explode from the high heat.
  • Be extra careful in deep-frying a turkey. Deep-frying turkey can lead to serious burns and injuries. Worse, it can cause destruction in your home. To safely deep-fry your turkey, see this turkey fryer safety tips sheet. Or, just buy a deep-fried turkey from specialty stores.
  • Be prepared in case of home-cooking fires. Install smoke alarms in your kitchen. If you already have them, ensure they’re working properly. You also need to secure a fire extinguisher and familiarize yourself and your family members on how to properly use it.
  • Revisit areas of your home after the party. After saying goodbye to your guests, recheck the different areas of your home to ensure there aren’t any potential hazards left.
When leaving your home

Crimes significantly rise during the holidays especially when people leave most their homes to go on vacations or visit relatives from other places. According to Criminal Justice Degrees Guide, home burglary is one of the most committed crimes during the holidays. The fact that people are out of their homes on holidays make burglars confident.

To safeguard your home from opportunistic holiday burglars, take below precautionary measures:

  • Never divulge any of your whereabouts on social media. Never broadcast your holiday plans on social media. Any information that you’re out of town may be used against you.
  • Avail of a home security system package. Some home security packages do not end with the installation of a home security system. They also include 24/7 monitoring services and apps where you can monitor your home from your smartphone. Avail these packages.
  • Install lights with timers and motion detectors. One way to make your house appear as if there’s someone in there is through installing lights with timers and motion detectors. With light timers, you can schedule when your light will automatically turn on or turn off.
  • Double lock all your doors and windows. Weak door and window locks can cause burglars to easily enter your home. Set up extra locks such as deadbolts and double locks.
  • Turn off your telephone ringer before you leave. Repeated telephone rings can signal no one’s left inside the house. Repeated rings can trigger burglars to break into a home.
  • Hold a trusted friend accountable while you’re away. Inform a few trusted friends or neighbors that you’d be away. Ask them to keep an eye on your home while you’re out of town. Authorize them to pick up your mail, newspapers, and other daily deliveries as well.
  • Plan ways on how your home will not look vacant. Burglars tend to break into homes which appear to be left unattended. It makes them free and confident to perform burglary.

Securing the safety of your home during the holidays also secures the joy and time you’ll be spending with your loved ones. Consider the tips and guidelines enumerated above and leave no room for burglars or accidents into your home. Happy Holidays! ☺
