Cooking

With Thanksgiving dinner on the horizon, your stove is going to be getting a lot of attention. it’s important that you pay close attention to what you’re doing! Be sure to turn off the stove when you leave the kitchen, set a timer for food that you’re letting sit, and keep flammable objects away.

Smoking

If you smoke, be sure to do it outside, use a safe ashtray, and never toss your cigarettes into a bush. Fan of using e-cigarettes? Never leave them charging overnight and don’t use it if it gets wet!

Candles
