The weather isn’t the only thing warming up!  People everywhere are getting ready to fire up their grills for the barbecue season.  Whenever you have an open flame near crowds of people there is the potential for hazard.  Here are six tips to help you grill safely:

  1. Make sure you keep a fire extinguisher close by.
  2. Place your grill in a location that is away from any structures that could ignite.
  3. Inspect your grill regularly for obstructions in the gas lines or for any leaks.
  4. When using a charcoal grill don’t add lighter fluid to coals that are already hot.
  5. To reduce the risk of bacteria, keep perishable foods cold until it is time to cook on the grill (Use your meat thermometer… Meats typically require 165 degrees to kill any bacteria.) Keeping your grill clean will avoid food contamination or grease buildup from flaring up and causing a fire.
  6. Be sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions for your grill.

Most importantly: Plan ahead and enjoy the meal! Protector Group wants everyone to have a safe and delicious grilling season.
