Tips for Backyard Grill and Fire Pit Fire Safety

    •    Keep at least a safe 3-foot clearance around the entire grill or fire pit. Keep kids and pets clear of this area too!
    •    Move the grill away from the house and fence, and move it out from underneath any overhangs. Do not use the grill under trees or near shrubbery.
    •    Regularly clean out the grease traps on your grill to prevent grease fires.
    •    Never leave your grill unattended!
    •    If using charcoal, make sure the coals have cooled completely before disposing of them in a metal container.
    •    Keeping a fire extinguisher or a big box of baking soda in the vicinity is good idea in case a fire does breakout.
    •    Drag a hose over to where you’re burning. If you have a sprayer on your hose, turn the water on and keep it on until you’re through with your fire in case of an emergency.
    •    Never have a fire under trees or overhangs, near shrubbery, or close to the house.
    •    Keep flammable materials away from fires.
    •    Never have a fire on a windy day!
