Grill Safety Tips to Help Keep Your Medina County Home from Experiencing a Fire

5/14/2020 (Permalink)

This summer, many people will be firing up their grills.  Unfortunately, many home fires occur each year as a result of gas grills.  It is more often equipment malfunction, than operator error that causes a fire to break out.

Even the most experienced of grillers may not be aware of a few simple precautions that could save your home from disaster. 

*Always grill outside, and keep the grill well away from the house, deck railings, overhanging branches and all furniture.

*At the start of grilling season, check your propane tank hose for leaks.

*Never use charcoal lighter fluid to try to start a gas grill. 

*Clean your grill trays regularly.  The less grease on or around your grill, the better.

*Keep pets and children away from the grill.  Pets can knock over a grill and cause tremendous damage.  Keep your home safe by keeping children and pets away until the cooking is done.

*Lastly, stay by the grill at all times while it’s on.
