Marketing Department

All of us at August Mack Environmental, Inc. would like to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving! People from all over will travel to spend the holiday with loved ones this weekend, and we at AME strive to ensure the safety of our employees and clients alike! Thanksgiving is also a time when people spend a lot of time in the kitchen, and we have a few tips to avoid a cooking fire while making Thanksgiving dinner.

Travel Safety 

• Follow the rules of the road – observe the speed limit.
• Use caution in work zones.
• Make frequent stops. During long trips, rotate drivers. 
• Don’t follow another vehicle too closely.
• Clean your headlights, taillights, signal lights and windows to help you see, especially at night.
• Turn your headlights on as dusk approaches, or if you are using your windshield wipers due to inclement weather.

Cooking Safety 

• Check food regularly.
• Use a timer as a reminder that the stove or oven is on.
• Keep children and pets away from the cooking area.
• Keep anything that can catch fire - pot holders, oven mitts, wooden utensils, paper or plastic bags, food packaging, and towels or curtains—away from the stove, oven or any other appliance in the kitchen that generates heat.
• Clean cooking surfaces on a regular basis to prevent grease buildup.
• Consider purchasing a fire extinguisher to keep in the kitchen. 
• Always check the kitchen before going to bed or leaving the home to make sure all stoves, ovens, and small appliances are turned off.
