Here's to Having a Safe Summer

5/2/2019 (Permalink)

Safety is important during the summer months.

Every year, almost 8,600 Americans are injured by fireworks and almost 5,000 people are injured by charcoal/wood-burning and propane grills.  Summertime should be a time where memories are made and the outdoors are enjoyed.  

Being mindful of the following tips, will help your summer end on a happy note:

  • When using a charcoal grill, only use starter fluids designed for barbecue grills-DO NOT add fluid once the coals have been lit.
  • When using a gas grill, be sure that connection hoses are intact and tight.  Using soapy water along the hoses is a great way to safely identify any leaks.
  • Be sure to extinguish all smoking materials when finished with them.
  • When camping, always use a flame retardant tent and set it up away from the campfire.  Only use battery operated lights and lanterns inside the tent.
  • ALWAYS build a campfire down wind from the tent area.  Clear vegetation and dig a pit or use a certified fire ring.  
  • Consider leaving firework use to trained professionals and keep a safety area of at least 500 feet from displays.
