You ever have one of those work weeks where it seems like you’re putting out one small fire after another? Exhausting, isn’t it? One sure-fire way to reduce that stressful workload is to outsource your secondary and tertiary processes to a responsible third party.

Speaking of fires, though, this summer, it’s best to keep them metaphorical. The best way to do that is to enjoy your favorite summer activities- like grilling- while taking extra precaution.
According to the National Fire Protection Association, July is the peak month for grill fires. That means we’re in the thick of fire season! With 7 out of 10 Americans owning a grill or smoker, most of us are at risk. But you don’t have to give up your favorite summer foods; you just have to proceed with caution. Our hot shot deliveries team has the details:
Each year, 19,000 patients come to the ER with grilling-related injuries. Over nine thousand of those are due to thermal burns. How can you prevent grill related accidents? Do as our hot shot deliveries team does- Keep safety as a priority.
- Keep the grill 10 feet or more away from your house.
- Clean your grill often, as to prevent grease fires.
- Open the lid to your gas grill prior to starting to avoid a buildup of gas.
- Have a fire extinguisher handy. Be sure it’s within its expiration date, and that you know how to use it.
- If your gas grill flame goes out, wait at least 5 minutes before restarting it.
- Tie back apron strings, roll up your sleeves, and keep your hair tied back. These can easily catch fire.
- Lighter fluid should only be used to start a charcoal grill. It shouldn’t be added after.
- Children under 5 comprise 38% of those injured due to contact burns. Keep children and pets at least 3 feet away from the grill.
- Never leave your grill unattended.
- As soon as you’re done, turn off the burners and shut down the gas lead. This is the most important part of grilling!
- Clean your grill thoroughly after using and check for grease build up.
- Don’t attempt to move a hot grill. It could cause serious burns. Instead, wait for it to cool completely before moving it.
- Charcoal can remain hot for many hours post-grilling.
- Grilling safety doesn’t end with the grill itself. Be mindful of the foods you grill, taking care not to cross contaminate.
