Start the Summer Right with Grilling BBQ Safety

Summer for many people means friends and family gathering for fun in the sun, time in the pool  and grilling. There is no better time to freshen up on grilling safety tips!

  • Maintain Your Grill – Check your grill hoses for cracks, holes or brittleness. Run a soap solution (one part liquid soap, one part water) along hoses and at connections to check for gas leaks.
  • Set Up Safely – Set your grill up on a level surface, at least 10 feet away from your house, garage or overhead trees and don’t move the grill once it is lit. If using charcoal, use only lighter fluid designed for grilling.
  • Be Ready to Put Out the Fire – Keep a fire extinguisher nearby. If using charcoal allow the coals to cool off completely before soaking them in water and disposing of them in a metal container.
