Did you know? NFPA is now a regular content contributor for Martha Stewart Living! Check out our latest outdoor entertaining blog on her website!

As you take a look at all of our great information, remember, following some simple safety tips and guidelines can help ensure you and your guests stay safe. Consider these tips below when you host your next outdoor event:

  • Have an adult present at all times when a portable fireplace is burning
  • Use sturdy candle holders that won’t tip over easily
  • Keep anything that can burn, as well as children and pets, at least three feet away from open flames
  • Use battery-operated flameless candles and solar-powered patio (tiki) torches in place of an open flame. Flameless candles come in all colors, shapes and sizes, and many are scented. Flameless candles look and feel like the real ones, and add a beautiful soft glow to any outdoor event.

Don’t forget, you can find these tips and more on our website at www.nfpa.org/outdoorentertaining. Take a look today!

Enjoy your summer! And thanks for keeping fire safety top of mind, everyone!
