Summer Grill Safety
There's no denying that grilling is thrilling. With summer upon us, 'tis the season to get your grill on. From pool parties to barbecues, it's just not a summer celebration without a grill. Before you light up your grill - keep this in mind. Almost 60 percent of grill fires happen on residential properties during the summer months. Such fires can lead to property damage, injury and death. Here are some helpful hints for keeping your family and friends safe during outdoor occasions. Come rain or shine, grills are meant to be used outside. Always park your grill at least 10 feet away from any house or dwelling. Don't use the grill in a garage, carport, porch, breezeway or any other area with an overhead that can catch fire. Make sure you grill on a level surface.
