As we all begin to kick off summer for the Memorial Holiday weekend – it’s is a good time to talk about Burgers – Hotdogs -Grills and safety!
Three out of five households own a gas grill – unfortunately, about 8,900 home fires occur each year as a result of gas grills. If you have a grill master in your home, they may think they have everything under control but its more often an equipment malfunction that causes a fire to happen, more so if you have not done much grilling over the winter months. Propane gas, fire dry air and dry grass can cook up a disaster you were not planning on serving for your weekend cookout.
Simple Precautions can save your home from a fire disaster. Always grill outside and keep the grill away from your house, deck and patio furniture. Check your propane tank hose for leaks. Keep your grill trays cleaned regularly. Always keep your pets and children away from the grill. Remember grills are not an oven, you cannot leave them unattended. Stay safe and enjoy these long awaited summer nights!
