Don’t Get Burned: Grilling Safety Tips for Memorial Day Weekend

May 21st, 2014 | Burns, Holiday, Seasonal

Friends, family, and grilling—there is nothing better! If you will be celebrating by grilling this Memorial Day weekend, it is important to go over a few safety precautions beforehand. The last thing you need is to suffer a burn!

Keep the following in mind:

  • Both propane and charcoal grills should ONLY be used outdoors. Never use a grill in a tent or enclosed area.
  • When grilling, make sure all children and pets are away from the area.
  • Keep a fire extinguisher on hand while grilling.
  • Never grill while intoxicated. If you will be enjoying a few beverages this weekend, it may be best to hand the spatula over to someone who isn’t.
  • Grill placement is important. You do not want to place it close to the home or shrubbery (to avoid catching fire), but also keep in mind that you want it in a low-traffic area.
  • Before grilling, remove any grease or fat build-up that could potentially ignite.
  • When handling items on the grill, use long-handed tools to give yourself plenty of clearance from heat and flames.
  • When dealing with a charcoal grill, always let coals cool down completely before handling and disposing of them.
  • Most importantly, never leave your grill unattended!

If you can follow the above safety precautions, you may be able to spare yourself a fire or burn this Memorial Day weekend. Enjoy!
