Grilling Safety

By Public Information Officer Rick Schartel

Nothing tastes better this time of year than a burger, hot dog, or some other treat done to perfection on an outdoor grille. Unfortunately, grilling does carry some risks. According to our contacts at the Consumer Product Safety Commission, over 22000 injuries each year are attributed to grilling incidents. Here are some things to think about:

• For propane grills, check the gas tank for leaks before use in the months ahead.
• Keep your grill clean by removing grease or fat buildup from the grills and in trays below the grill.
• Place the grill well away from the home, deck railings, and out from under eaves and overhanging branches.
• Always make sure your gas grill lid is open before lighting it.
• Keep children and pets at least three feet away from the grilling area.
• If you use starter fluid when charcoal grilling, only use charcoal starter fluid. Never add charcoal fluid or any other flammable liquids to the fire. When you have or are finished grilling, let the coals cool completely before disposing in a metal container.
• Never leave your grill unattended when in use.

For more information on grilling safety contact our Fire Prevention Lieutenant at 610-898-1452, Extension 5. You can also visit our friends at the NFPA at https://www.nfpa.org/Education-and-Research/Home-Fire-Safety/Grilling and check out this flyer.

Bon Appetit’ !
