July Is The Peak Month For Grill Fires
According to National Fire Protection Association July is the peak month for grill fires, followed by the months June, May, and August.
During the summer season when the days are longer and the weather is warmer, more families cook food outside. Whether you use gas, propane, charcoal, or a smoker, SERVPRO of East Davie/Cooper City wants you to keep these fire precautions in mind.
For gas/propane grills:
*Check the gas tank for leaks before using it.
*Open the lid on all gas grills before lighting.
For charcoal grills:
*Use only charcoal-started fluid to start the fire.
*Make sure the coals are completely cool before disposing of them in a metal container.
For smokers as well as all grills alike, these common-sense tips apply. Make sure the placement of the grill is away from the house. Don't place it under eaves or trees. Never leave the grill unattended and ensure the kids and pets are at least three feet away. Remembering to remove the grease and fat buildup from the trays and grills after each use is important.
SERVPRO wants you to have a safe, enjoyable summer while feasting on the delicious foods you cook. We hope the delicious smokey fire smell is the only fire smell you remember this summer.
