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