Is it warmer enough to fire up the grill for a nice barbecue...close enough. When you are inviting friends and family over for a weekend barbecue, make sure to practice safety precautions around the grill to prevent anyone from being injured or burned. According to the National Fire Protection Association, over 9,000 home fires involve grills. Leaks or breaks were the leading cause of gas grill-related fires and leaving flammable objects too close to the heat was the leading cause of charcoal grill fires. Here are a few grill safety tips to help you enjoy your barbecues this season:



1. Choose a safe location for your grill

Pick a level surface that is at least ten feet away from your house or other structures. Keep your pets and kids away from the grill. Do not place grills on balconies or under overhangs.

2. Grill outside only

Using a grill in any enclosed space, such as a garage or tent, does not allow for proper ventilation. Keep grills in spacious areas.

3. Keep the grill going on a cold day

On colder days, avoid loose clothing that could catch fire. Try to shield your grill from the wind and keep the lid closed to retain the heat. Preheat your grill for a little bit longer and make sure to check the temperature of the food to make sure it is cooked enough and safe to eat.

4. Teach kids grill safety

Keep kids at least three feet away from the grill and areas with hot food.

5. Remember post-grilling safety

Remove the grease and fat buildup from the grill and trays below the grill. If you have a charcoal grill, soak the charcoal in water to cool them off before disposing them. Cover your grill tightly and close the vents. This will extinguish the coals and leave your grill ready for its next use.
