The El Paso Fire Department along with Wal-mart are holding a turkey fry demonstration for those interested in frying a whole turkey and following safety precautions.

The El Paso Fire Department will demonstrate the proper way to fry a turkey for the holidays. The EPFD Community Risk Reduction and Public Education divisions will also discuss various safety tips surrounding a turkey fry which can lead to serious injury or even a fire hazard if not executed correctly.

According to Lt. James Schaerfl, “Frying a turkey presents additional fire risks, but by utilizing a few, important safety tips, we can make the process much safer. We want to thank Wal-Mart for providing the turkey, oil and frying tools for this demonstration.”
