Getting Grilling? Use These Safety Tips

Fire Safety TipsHow To Grill Safely This Summer

With the extra warmth and longer days the summer offers, the last thing you want to do after a day in the office is head inside to get dinner ready. Fortunately, grilling offers you the opportunity to craft a nutritious meal for your family while enjoying some fresh air. Before you fire up your grill, though, review these safety tips.

  • Keep Your Distance: Ensure that your grill is at least ten feet away from your home, porch, or other structure that could catch flames. Also, check that there are no dry trees or shrubs nearby.
  • Clean Up Crew: After your meal is done, wait until the grill cools and clean your racks. It will only take you a minute to do, but can avoid a major flare up caused by residual fats and grease.
  • Stay Supervised: Never leave your grill unattended. If you need to step away for a minute, ask another competent adult to man the flames.

Should the worst happen and a fire break out, would you have the Pennsylvania homeowners insurance you need to rebuild without major expense to yourself? To set the right protections in place this summer and beyond, contact Miller Insurance Associates in Carlisle.
