Letter from Mid-West Tennessee Executive Director, Debra Roberson - November 2015

The kitchen is the heart of the home, especially around the holidays. Safety in the kitchen is important, especially on Thanksgiving Day when there is a lot of activity and people at home.

Here are a few safety tips to for you and your family this holiday season:

 •Stay in the kitchen when you are cooking on the stove top so you can keep an eye on the food. When cooking your turkey, check on it frequently.
•Be sure electric cords from an electric knife, coffee maker, plate warmer or mixer are not dangling off the counter within easy reach of a child.
•Never leave children alone in a room with a lit a candle.
•Make sure your smoke alarms are working. Test them by pushing the test button.

I would like to wish all of our Red Cross volunteers, friends and families a very Happy Thanksgiving.  I want to encourage everyone to take some time to rest, spend time with loved ones and also to take a few moments to think about the many things we have to be thankful for.  I am very grateful for our volunteers and the support they give to Red Cross.  

Happy Thanksgiving,
Debra Roberson
Executive Director
