Holiday cheer brings on excitement and along with it comes kitchen fires especially when someone is too distracted to pay attention to what has been left cooking on the stove. Unfortunately, Thanksgiving and Christmas are two celebrations that can lead to kitchen fires and surprisingly, cases of kitchen fires are high during these two particular holidays. Protecting your Home from Fire Many insurance companies believe that careful planning and exercising precautionary measures at home can help prevent a fire. Insurance firms also encourage clients to make sure their fire alarms are working properly, especially when holidays are just around the corner. Family members should also be alert at all times and aware of the existence and location of fire prevention devices such as fire extinguishers. Precautionary Tips to Prevent Fire This Thanksgiving Thanksgiving parties call for dinners and sumptuous meals. Those who do not normally cook may be inclined to cook fine meals especially when family members come over for a visit. Getting distracted while a meal is cooking is one of the reasons why kitchen fires start during the holidays. For instance, when you are preparing meals, the family comes knocking on the door with presents and holiday greetings. You get carried away by the holiday cheer and forget that the oven is turned on and all of sudden the house is filled with smoke or worse, flames. Alcohol and cooking do not mix well. Of course, holidays call for celebrations and that means there will always be some form of drinking alcohol. Those who are not really alcohol drinkers may choose to take a rare drink of alcohol to join in with the festivities. It is important to remember that alcohol can interfere with the ability to make sound decisions. Risky behavior is also associated with alcohol and kitchen fires are not an exception. Considering Home Insurance If you are a victim of a house fire, you should be knowledgeable about submitting insurance claims correctly. Fortunately, damages caused by fire are usually covered by a home insurance policy. Proper documentation of fire damage is required to make sure you can process your claim quickly. Choosing the best insurance provider will help you get the best coverage you need. Sources:
