Test your grilling safety knowledge before your big Labor Day event

By LisaMarie Sinatra

Doesn’t it seem like summer just got started? I can hardly believe that September is here and with Labor Day around the corner, like the rest of us, you’re probably already thinking about the details of your big weekend party. I would venture to guess, too, that whatever the meal is you have planned, a grill will most certainly take center stage. That’s where we come in.

NFPA has created a number of great fire safety resources that can be helpful when you’re cooking up a bounty of veggies, meat and fish on the grill. How about a quick refresher? Our latest grilling video puts everyday people to the test and asks them, “Do you know the proper way to safely use a grill?” The answers may surprise you. Take a look and see how your knowledge stacks up!

Need to fill that propane tank before you turn on the grill? Our “Simple Test for Checking Gas Grill Leaks” video is a quick and easy way to get all the information you need to prepare your grill safely before the guests arrive.

Find these videos and a whole lot more on NFPA’s grilling fire safety webpage at www.nfpa.org/grilling. And while you’re there, take the opportunity to download our tips sheet and share it with friends and family.

Enjoy the holidays and stay safe, everyone!
