Grilling Safety Tips

We often think of house fires as typically occurring in the winter. After all, winter is the season for chimney obstructions, Christmas light malfunctions, and space heater accidents. However, in the summer months, there are different risks, including the use of outdoor grills and similar equipment, which can contribute to house fires. According to the National Fire Protection Association, “In 2009 – 2013, an annual average of 8,900 home fires involved grills, hibachis or barbecues.“ Though being outside may give you a sense of security, the reality is that fire always poses some danger and requires constant supervision and careful monitoring. This article from the Hearth, Patio & Barbecue Association offers some practical grilling safety tips for the outdoor cook.
