Grilling Safety Tips:

1. Make sure the grill is at least 10 feet away from other objects -- that includes the house, shrubs, trees, etc.
2. If using a charcoal grill, only use a starter fluid made for that type of grill.

3. Never leave a lit grill unattended. 
4. If using a gas grill, check the connection between the propane tank and the fuel line to be sure there is no leak. DO NOT use a match to check for leaks!!!

5. If you find a leak, immediately turn off the gas. Fix the leak before turning on the grill.
6. Don’t ever bring a barbecue grill into your home or garage. You’ll be at risk for carbon monoxide poisoning and fire.

7. Keep children and pets away from the grilling area.
8. Have a bucket of water handy - just in case!

SUPER-IMPORTANT: NEVER pour water on a grease fire.
If the fire is outside, throw dirt on it. If the fire is inside your kitchen, try to smother the
flames with a pot lid, or use salt, baking soda, or a fire extinguisher.
