It’s National Grilling Month!

Is a barbeque part of your Independence Day celebration? It’s a popular and tasty way to cook up hot dogs, vegetables, and burgers. Remember to be cautious. Grilling causes nearly 20,000 injuries each year. Don’t let your cookout end with a trip to the emergency room. 

Enjoy your grilling the safe way by following these guidelines from the National Fire Protection Association:

  • Propane and charcoal grills should be used outdoors, never indoors
  • Place your grill away from your home, deck railings, and out from under eaves and overhanging tree branches
  • Children must stay at least 3’ away from the grill at all times
  • Do not leave your grill unattended
  • Always open the gas grill’s lid prior to lighting it, and check the tank for leaks at the beginning of each grilling season
  • If you used starter fluid for your charcoal grill, use only charcoal starter fluid
  • Keep charcoal fluid out of the reach of children
  • When you finish grilling on your charcoal grill, let the coals cool completely before storing in a metal container
