  1. Keep grills at least 10 feet from other objects, including the house and bushes.
  2. Keep children away from the grill and never leave the grill unattended.
  3. Never use the grill inside your home or garage.
  4. Check your gas grill hoses for cracks, holes and leaks.
  5. Store your propane tanks in the garage or shed, not in the house! Most fires are started by children when they are left alone or unsupervised.
  6. When using charcoal, Douse the grilling coals with water after use.

More than 50,000 fires are caused by fireworks every year ….  Review fireworks laws and call or visit the local law enforcement office and ask for a list of legal fireworks.

  1. Fireworks that cause the most injuries are firecrackers, sparklers, and bottle rockets.
  2. Never allow children to play with fireworks, even sparklers, as these can reach 2000 degrees.
  3. Always keep a portable fire extinguisher and a working garden hose close by.
  4. Do not point sparklers, or fireworks at yourself or others, doing so could turn into major burns or fatality.
  5. Only light the fireworks on the ground and in an area that is dry and fire  resistant.
