Important Tips on Fire Safety During Memorial Day Holiday in Mercer County NJ

5/9/2024 (Permalink)

The weather is getting warmer, and the summer season is swiftly approaching in Mercer County, NJ.  There’s nothing like firing up the gas grill or roasting marshmallows in an outdoor fire pit. While the thought of grilling and charcoal seems fun and tasty during these summer months, always be sure to prioritize safety when utilizing fire and gas.

Here are some tips to ensure your safety when using a gas grill or charcoal grill:

  • Always inspect your grill before turning on the gas. Make sure the grills are cleaned and free of old grease.
  • Ensure good ventilation when lighting a gas grill. Gas can build up in the grill cannister before the igniter actually fires the burners.
  • Keep your outdoor fireplace clear of debris to ensure the fireplace does not hold unnecessary flammable material.

In addition to ensuring the inside of your home remains clear of fires, the outdoor section of your home also has the potential for fire damage, if you do not take precautionary measures. Below are some fire pit safety tips:

  • Always check the wind forecast before lighting a fire. If there is copious amounts of wind, it can be hard to light kindling and sparks can fly into nearby bushes, potentially causing a fire.
  • If you are sitting around the fire, sit far enough away from the fire to prevent any mishaps.
  • Do not leave a fire unattended, even for a couple of minutes. If the fire is barely lit, extinguish it before walking away. Almost-extinguished fires have started some of the largest wildfires in U.S. history.
