Grill safety

Nothing says summer like a nice barbecue but, while cooking, it’s important to keep certain safety measures in mind. These safety measures ensure a pleasant, worry-free summer for any backyard chef and will prevent any potential fire hazards or carbon monoxide poisoning.
  • Do not use the grill to cook or heat inside the house or apartment
  • Keep grill away from any siding or deck railings
  • Keep grill in a well ventilated area
  • Keep any potentially combustible materials away from the grill
  • Keep children and pets away from the grill area
  • Maintain grill and regularly clean any accumulated grease or fat
  • Ensure that the grill is properly connected and there is no potential of a gas leak
  • Keep a close eye on the grill and do not leave it unattended
  • If you smell gas, turn off the grill and do not relight it until checking about a possible gas leak. If there is a potential gas leak, call 911
