The members of the Berwyn Fire Company would like to wish you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving. We would also like to remind all citizens in Tredyffrin and Easttown Townships to be extra careful, while preparing your feasts.

The kitchen is the heart of the home, especially at Thanksgiving. Children love to be involved in holiday preparations. Safety in the kitchen is important, especially on Thanksgiving Day when there is a lot of activity and people at home. Thanksgiving is the leading day for home fires involving cooking equipment in the United States.

Our friends at the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) want to remind us all of these quick safety tips:

• Stay in the kitchen when you are cooking on the stovetop so you can keep an eye on the food.
• Stay in the home when cooking your turkey and check on it frequently.
• Keep children away from the stove. The stove will be hot and kids should stay 3 feet away.
• Make sure kids stay away from hot food and liquids. The steam or splash from vegetables, gravy or coffee could cause serious burns.
• Keep the floor clear so you don't trip over kids, toys, pocketbooks or bags.
• Keep knives out of the reach of children.
• Be sure electric cords from an electric knife, coffee maker, plate warmer or mixer are not dangling off the counter within easy reach of a child.
• Keep matches and utility lighters out of the reach of children — up high in a locked cabinet.
• Never leave children alone in room with a lit a candle.
• Make sure your smoke alarms are working. Test them by pushing the test button.
