Summer is Grilling Time


Summer is a great time for grilling. Here are some grill safety tips from the Maitland Fire-Rescue Department and the National Fire Protection Association:

  • Propane and charcoal BBQ 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.
  • Check for gas leaks.
  • Keep a fire extinguisher within a couple steps of your grill.
  • Keep decorations away from your grill.
