Take extra precautions with turkey fryers (be sure the oil used to fry the turkey is the right temperature and always fry outside, in a well-ventilated area.) Don't use water to extinguish a grease fire -- instead, douse the fire with baking soda.
Many Christmas trees are fitted with water containers to keep them fresh. This water could contain fertilizer or become stagnant over time. Prevent your pet from drinking from the tree to avoid potential complications.
Holiday parties offer us the opportunity to get all dressed up, hang out with friends, family and co-workers, and generally have a great time. These social events can be so much fun but unfortunately can also carry some threats to your safety.
