Spring Safety Tips

Spring time is finally here! It’s now time for outdoor cooking and yard work. Here are some tips to help make your outdoor activities safer this year.

Outdoor Cooking

  • The grill should be placed well away from the home, deck railings and out from under eaves and overhanging branches.
  • Keep children and pets at least three feet away from the grill area.
  • Never leave your grill unattended.
  • If you use a starter fluid, use only charcoal starter fluid. Never add charcoal fluid or any other flammable liquids to the fire.
  • An easy way to start a charcoal grill is to use a charcoal chimney starter using newspaper as fuel.
  • When you are finished grilling on a charcoal grill, let the coals completely cool before disposing in a metal container.
  • Before using a propane grill, check all connections for proper fit and bottle integrity.

Outdoor Equipment

  • Make sure all lawn mowers, edger’s, weed eaters, trimmers, etc. are in good working order for the season.
  • Use eye and ear protection while operating machinery.
  • Keep children and pets at a safe distance while operating outdoor equipment.
  • Add fuel before starting the engine, not when it is running or hot.
  • Fuel should be stored in approved containers, away from ignition source. An outdoor shed is the ideal location for fuel storage.
  • If equipment is electric powered, use approved extension cords that are safe for operation.
