Grilling Safety Tips

Grilling Safety Tips

BAY CITY, Mich. - With Memorial Day Weekend just around the corner, summer seems to have FINALLY started, even though it's been a bit chilly recently. Many people across the country will celebrate this holiday with parades, festivals, fairs and spending time with the family which usually involves some sort of BBQ. To ensure everyone at the family BBQ has an AMAZING time, check out these grilling safety tips!

  • If you are using a charcoal grill, keep charcoal fluid away from heat sources and out of reach of pets and children. 
  • Both propane and charcoal BBQ grills should ONLY BE USED OUTDOORS. Trust us, don't bring the grills inside. 
  • Make sure the grill is away from the home, deck railings and out from under eaves and overhanging branches. The fireworks you want at your family BBQ are the ones you watch under the stars, not around your grill. 
  • Make sure to keep your grill clean and free from grease or fat buildup from the grills and in trays below the grill. 
  • NEVER leave the grill unattended to. 
  • If you are using a propane grill, check the gas tank hose for leaks before the first grill of the season. 
  • If you smell gas while cooking, move away from the grill and call the local fire department immediately, don't try moving the grill. 

According to the NFPA, the National Fire Protection Association, May is the second highest month for grilling accidents. Each year an average of 8,800 home fires are caused by grilling, and close to 50% of injuries involving grills are due to thermal burns. By following these simple, grilling safety tips your family can have a relax-full weekend!
