Grilling Tips To Prevent Wildfires

If you plan to use a grill to cook your meals, do your part in preventing grill fires by following these simple tips.

  • Most grill fires are caused by failing to clean excess grease from the grill or by something flammable too close to the grill.

  • Keep your grill clean. Remove excess grease to prevent flare-ups.

  • Never leave your grill unattended.

  • Keep children and pets at least 3 feet away from the grill.

  • Only use grills in open areas, away from flammable objects/materials, including overhead objects like branches or patio covers.

  • Clear an area around your grill of vegetation and other flammables.

  • Avoid grilling on windy days.

  • Only dispose of coals when completely cold.

  • Do NOT travel with a lit or smoldering grill in the back of a truck or trailer. Embers may blow out while you are driving and cause a roadside start.
