The Dangers of Frying a Turkey

Frozen Turkey Fire The fire department drops a frozen turkey into a fryer

We were happy to partner up with the Hendersonville fire department to demonstrate the dangers of dropping a frozen turkey into a fryer. If you are cooking a turkey make sure it has plenty of time a thaw. Do not drop it in the oil quickly. You want to ease it down slowly. Make sure your fryer is outside and you have a fire extinguisher present.

We offer continuing education throughout the year for insurance agents and adjusters. We provide classes that cover water damage and mold, but our most popular class is always the thanksgiving fire remediation class.

After the class is complete we head outside where the fire department already has the oil heated up. They drop a frozen turkey into the fryer and what happens next is crazy.

Here is a really good video of the event this year. The fire department does great job showing you what can wrong when frying a turkey. While also giving you great advice on how to do it the right way.
