Grilling Safety

Many people will be firing up their grills this Memorial Day weekend and throughout the summer.

With grilling season set to be in full force, take time to review a few safety tips from the U.S. Fire Administration (USFA) to protect yourself and your guests from a fire or burn injuries:

·         Only use your grill outside;

·         Keep it away from siding and deck rails;

·         Keep a 3-foot safe zone around your grill to keep kids and pets safe;

·         Clean your grill after each use to remove grease, which can start a fire;

·         Place the coals from your grill in a metal can with a lid once they have cooled;

·         Open your gas grill before lighting; and

·         Keep an eye on your grill fire pit or patio torches.

Tips from FEMA to Make Your Home Safer.

Changing our clocks twice a year is a Great time to remember to change batteries in our smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors. The batteries should be replaced at least once a year to make sure the alarms operate  properly.

By maintaining the alarms in your home, you can increase your chances of surviving a fire or carbon monoxide poisoning.  When fire breaks-out, you only have seconds to escape its heat, black smoke, and deadly gases. Carbon monoxide is a poisonous gas that fuel-burning heating and cooking devices often produce. It is often called the silent killer becasue it is odorless and colorless. The National Fire Protection Association offers tips for making your home safer:

  • Place smoke and carbon monoxide alarms on every level of your home and outside each bedroom. If you keep your bedroom doors closed, place a smoke alarm in each bedroom;
  • Test alarms once a month;
  • Never disable a smoke alarm when coking;
  • Replace smoke alarms that are ten years old.
