BARBECUE SAFETY

 

The summer season allows friends and family to enjoy the pleasures of barbecuing. Please follow precautions to prevent harm to property and persons.

  • Never leave a hot grill unsupervised
  • Keep grill away from decks, houses and other objects which could possibly ignite (grills need space)
  • Keep children, pets and other people at least 3ft from the grill
  • ONLY use proper starter fluid for grills and NOT gasoline. DO NOT add fluid to a lit grill
  • Maintain gas grills and check hoses for leaks
  • Propane tanks made after April 2002 should have overflow protection devices (OPD) which shut off the gas before capacity is reached
  • Periodically, clean the grill to prevent grease fires
  • Do not wear loose or other clothing that can dangle near a grill and catch fire
  • Grills should ALWAYS be used outdoors with plenty of space around them (prevents inhaling toxic gasses and other fire hazards)
