Don't Get Burnt Grilling!

Outdoor Barbeque Safety Tips:

  • Move the grill away from siding, decking, and other things that can catch fire.
  • Stay with the grill the entire time you're cooking.
  • Use long-handled barbecue tools when cooking on the grill.
  • Use a metal screen over wood-burning fires to keep sparks from floating out.
  • Turn off or extinguish fires before you leave the backyard.
  • Check outdoor burning regulations with your local fire jurisdiction before lighting your fire.
