‘Tis a grand season for grilling (and keeping fire safety in mind)!

By LisaMarie Sinatra

Memorial Day weekend is just a few days away and for those of us here in New England, it could not have come at a better time. After enduring what seemed like the longest winter EVER, we can actually smell the flowers and see grass growing again!

With spring in the air most people are already hard at work planning for lots of fun outdoor parties and cookouts this weekend and beyond. Are you one of them? If you are, then you’ll want to check out NFPA‘s newest videos that will help you kick off the grilling season safely and in style.

But before you start, let me ask, do you:

* Know how to turn on the grill safely?

* Know what to do if the grill doesn’t ignite or the flame goes out?

* Know how to turn off the grill safely?

You might be surprised at the answers. To find the correct response to these questions, watch NFPA’s first of two grilling fire safety videos below or find it on our grilling fire safety web page. We believe that this short, fun video will have you thinking differently about your cookouts and BBQs from now on, AND you’ll stay safer each time you fire up the grill.

Want more great information? Then check out our full grilling fire safety page where you’ll find information about propane and charcoal grills, a great tips sheet that’s easy to download and share with friends and family, interesting statistics, and our latest infographic that reminds us why grilling safely is so important and should be taken seriously.

Enjoy a safe and happy grilling season, everyone!
