Grilling Safety Tips

10/14/2020 (Permalink)

Every year we see house fires related to backyard grilling. Here are our helpful grilling safety tips. Did you know that on average 8,900 house fires are caused by grilling each year? And, an average of 7,000 Americans are injured while using backyard grills each year? We didn't either.

Don't Let a Grilling Accident Ruin your Fun

    • Set up the grill at least 10 ft away from the home - this includes 10 ft away from your wooden deck! Do not grill on the deck.
    • Favorite team playing? Bring your radio or TV outside. Don't leave a grill unattended.
    • Only turn on the gas when the grill lid is open.
    • Raining outside? Wait for it to pass. Don't operate a backyard grill indoors.
    • Check for gas leaks before use.
    • Dirty grill? Clean it before using. Cleaning regularly prevents grease buildup - AKA more fuel for your fire.
    • Prepare for the unexpected. Even the most experienced cooks can have a fire. Keep a fire extinguisher nearby and know how to use it.
