  1. Memorial Day Grill Safety graphicBefore you barbecue any food on your home grill, be sure it’s clean. Leftover grease is a huge fire hazard!
  2. DO NOT leave any fire unattended – whether it’s a bonfire or a flame on the grill, stay close and keep an eye on it.
  3. Make sure you and everyone at the party knows where the portable fire extinguisher is located. If you don’t have an extinguisher, be sure to get one at the store just in case.
  4. Keep any flame or grill at least 2 FEET away from plants, the side of your house or deck or any flammable object.
