Por LisaMarie Sinatra

It’s July and you know what that means! Summer meals on the grill! What better way to celebrate our love of food than with ingredients cooked over an open flame. YUM!

While you’re preparing your next meal and gathering friends and family together, don’t forget to keep safety in mind. Here are a few tips that can help reduce your risk of injuries and structure damage from grill fires:

  • Propane and charcoal BBQ grills should only be used outdoors.
  • The grill should be placed well away from the home, deck railings and out from under eaves and overhanging branches.
  • Keep children and pets away from the grill area.
  • Keep your grill clean by removing grease or fat buildup from the grills and in trays below the grill.
  • Never leave your grill unattended.
