Safety Tips for setting up your Gas Grill
Damaging fires from grills are more common than you may think. Here are some tips on how you can protect your family and home from a harmful fire before you fire up the grill.
First purchase a fire extinguisher to keep close to the grill. Water will not put out a grease fire it will actually spread the fire. Make sure the grill is assembled properly and remember gas grills are fueled by liquid propane that requires special handling and storage.
Another important decision is where the safest place to set up the grill is. NEVER cook inside your home and NEVER cook inside you garage or on your covered porch. Set up away from tree limbs, and keep 10 feet away from your outside walls and deck railing (unless the manufacturer’s instructions say it can be closer).
