Summertime Safety Tips
SUMMER IS HERE! Keep these tips in mind as you and your family enjoy summer vacations, camping, family reunions, picnics and the Fourth of July.
- Build campfires at least 25 feet away from tents, shrubs and anything that can burn.
- If you want to see fireworks, go to a public show put on by experts. Sparklers can reach 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit and cause third-degree burns.
- Use chimineas, outdoor fireplaces, and fire pits outdoors only and at least 10 feet away from your home or anything that can burn.
- Use propane, charcoal and wood pellet barbecue grills outdoors only. Indoor use can cause a fire or carbon monoxide poisoning. Place your grill well away from siding and deck railings and out from under eaves and overhanging branches. Do not store or use a grill on a porch or balcony.
