A MESSAGE FROM THE FIRE MARSHAL
Summer is here and so are backyard barbeques with family and friends. Outdoor grilling is a very popular way to cook, but it can be dangerous if the proper precautions are not taken. Here are some tips to keep you and your loved ones safe while cooking on the grill:
- Never leave your grill unattended and make sure to keep children and pets at least three feet away from the grill to prevent possible injuries.
- The grill should be placed well away from the home, deck railings, and out from under eaves and overhanging branches.
- Always make sure your gas grill lid is open before lighting it.
- When using propane grills, check the tank and hose for leaks before lighting the grill for the first time every year.
- After using charcoal grills, let the coals cool completely before disposing in a metal container.
- If you smell gas while cooking, immediately get away from the grill and call the fire department.
Please keep these tips in mind while using your grill and have a safe summer!
