Grilling Fires: The Best Security System is a Well-Informed Homeowner

INTRODUCTION:

Summertime means a chance to slow down, unwind, and fire up those steaks on the barbecue. However, before you take the grill out of the garage and purchase new coals, you should know about some statistics from the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). According to them, the months of June and July are peak times for home fires to occur. An average of over 8,000 homes suffered fire damage from outdoor grills in 2006-2010 alone. Read on for tips on barbecue safety and what you can do to protect your home and loved ones from fires this season. INTRODUCTION

Test Your Home Alarm System :

Summer usually brings warm weather, and warm weather invites activity into communities. People go on vacation, others party the night away, and parents take it easy outdoors. It's this easygoing atmosphere that creates a perfect setup for crime. To stay protected, it's important for homeowners to always enlist the  best security systems  in both their homes and vehicles so they can keep predators at bay at all times. Security systems should include alarms, technology that alerts the local authorities when a break-in or theft occurs, and security cameras so thieves and predators can be caught on tape. Test Your Home Alarm System

Clean Grills Before Operating :

Both gas and charcoal grills should be cleaned and inspected every year before use. Check for grease deposits in the grill pit and around handles and dials. If using a gas grill, clean the hose with soapy water and check for possible propane leaks. Do not use if you smell gas or see soap actively bubbling. Clean Grills Before Operating

Keep Your (Grill) Distance from the House :

Outdoor grills should be at least ten feet away from the structure of your home. This way, if fire or excess smoke does occur, you will have time to extinguish it before it has a chance of catching onto a flammable structure. Keep grills away from low-hanging vegetation and shrubs for the same reason. Keep Your (Grill) Distance from the House

Never Leave the Grill Unattended :

Even the  best security systems  won't protect you if you don't exercise precaution. Always stay near a lit grill and never allow children or pets to come closer than three feet from its location. Keep a phone on hand in case you need someone from inside the house to bring grilling items out to you. Never Leave the Grill Unattended

Do Not Mix Starter Fluids :

If using charcoal fluid on a grill, stick with one type only. Mixing starter fluids or adding other flammable compounds can lead to a combustion or release harmful chemicals into the air. In addition, do not add more starter fluid to an existing fire. If the fire is dying down, let it extinguish or turn the grill off (if using electric) before reigniting it. Do Not Mix Starter Fluids

Let Your Grill Cool Down Completely When Finished :

Never bring a warm grill indoors or close to the home immediately after using. Wait until the coals have died down completely or, in the case of an electric grill, unplug and wait a few hours for the grill to be cool. When disposing of charcoal, make sure that they are completely cooled beforehand. Dampen them with water as a further precaution Let Your Grill Cool Down Completely When Finished
