Grilling is a popular way to enjoy the nice summer weather. Grill fires can start easily and spread quickly. Learn how you can help keep your home and family safe with these tips.
- Only use grills outside: It may be tempting to set up your grill inside of your open garage grills are strictly designed for outdoor use where there is plenty of ventilation.
- Place your grill away from your home: You should avoid placing your grill outside the back door, or back deck because it can pose a potential fire hazard.
- Make sure your grill is located on a flat surface: Grills that are placed on uneven surfaces can tip over easily and cause a fire.
- Check your grill for leaks: A leak in the gas lines can cause propane to build up inside when the lid is closed. Check the gas lines to make sure that they are free of leaks.
- Always clean your grill after use: Using your grill often causes grease to build up. If not cleaned, the build-up can then act as fuel and catch fire.
- Never leave your barbecue grill unattended while in use: Barbecues use high heat and open flames to cook food. When a grill is left unattended it can become a safety and fire hazard.
- Keep a spray bottle on hand: It’s common for grills to flare up as fat drips, and this can cause a section of the grill to remain on fire.
- Always have a fire extinguisher close by It is simple to use, just point and spray to extinguish the fire.
