Happy Thanksgiving!

 

The CityLink Newsletter will not be published this week due to the Thanksgiving Holiday. As a reminder, City of Concord offices will be closed on Thursday, November 28 and Friday, November 29.

If you plan to fry a turkey, the Consumer Product Safety Commission recommends the following safety guidelines:
  • Completely thaw and dry the turkey before cooking;
  • Never use a turkey fryer in, on or under a garage, breezeway, porch or any structure that can catch fire;
  • If oil begins to smoke, immediately turn off gas supply; and
  • If a fire occurs, call 911.

Thanksgiving is the peak day for home cooking fires. For a safer alternative to deep-frying your bird, consider using an outdoor turkey cooking appliance that does not require oil.

Fire is Everyone’s Fight™! Join in this national effort led by the U.S. Fire Administration to lower the number of home fires and injuries to make your holiday season disaster free.

Our best wishes to you and your family for a safe and happy Thanksgiving.
