Grilling Safety Tips

  • Propane and charcoal barbeque 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 at least three feet 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
  • Always make sure your gas grill lid is open before lighting it
