Barbecue Safety

  • When using barbecue grills on decks or patios, be sure to leave sufficient space from siding and leaves.
  • Keep children and pets far away from grills.
  • With charcoal grills, only use charcoal starter fluids designed for barbecue grills and do not add fluid after coals have been lit.
  • With gas grills, be sure that the hose connection is tight and check hoses carefully for leaks.  Applying soapy water to the hoses will easily and safely reveal any leaks.
  • Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions and have the grill repaired by a professional, if necessary.
