Grill Safety

The warm weather is finally around the corner. Here are a few ways to keep your family safe while cooking out this year.

Grill Safety

  • All grills should only be used outdoors.
  • Keep grills away from the house, deck railings, and away from eaves and overhanging objects.
  • Children and pets should be kept a minimum of 3 feet away from the grilling area.
  • Avoid grease fires!! Clean all grease and fat from the components of the grill, including the trays below the grill.
  • Never leave your grill unattended.
  • Keep any charcoal fluids away from children.
  • Once a fire is lit, do not add any more flammable products to the fire.
  • When you are finished grilling, let coals completely cool before disposing of.
  • Always be sure to check the tank hose for leaks if using propane.
  • Any problems with your grill should be serviced by a professional before continued use.
