Fire Safety Tips for Summer
- Never use a BBQ indoors or in an enclosed space – it’s not only a fire hazard but it can expose you or your family to dangerous and toxic gases.
- Place your BBQ well away from combustible objects or materials such as decks, fences or plants.
- Never leave your grill unattended when lit.
- Keep a water hose or pail close at hand in case of emergency
