With more car crashes, kitchen accidents, turkey fryer mishaps and holiday decorating hazards, the long Thanksgiving weekend can be a busy time of year for paramedics.
EMSA says injuries can be avoided, however, with some simple precautions.
If you’re driving, plan on there being traffic and give yourself extra time to get to your destination.
If you’re frying a turkey this year, it should be well on its way to being thawed. You should only fry a fully thawed turkey. EMSA paramedics handle a handful of turkey fryer–related incidents each year.
