Stay Safe this Memorial Day

This weekend is Memorial Day weekend. It is a day to remember and honor those that have given their lives in service of our nation. It is also a day for friends and family to get together and kick off the start of summer. One of the more popular activities for this holiday is a backyard barbecue. Here are just a few suggestions to keep you and your family safe on this holiday weekend.

    • Place your grill at least 10 feet away from other objects including your house, shed , trees, and bushes.
    • Always stay by the grill when cooking.
    • Before starting your grill check for gas leaks. You can do this by using a basting brush to spread very soapy water over all of the hoses and connections while valve on your gas tank in the on position. The formation of bubbles will indicate a leakage point.
    • Do not light a match,  smoke,  or have any other form of open flame near the grill until you’ve determined that there are no gas leaks.
    • Never bring your grill inside the house or into the garage.  It’s both a fire and carbon monoxide hazard.
    • When you’re finished cooking be sure to keep kids and pets away from the grill until it is fully cooled.
I hope everyone has a safe and happy Memorial Day Weekend! So tell me what does everyone have planned to do over the long weekend?

  1. Good tips, Rayna.

    I’ll be cleaning the furniture sitting in the garage during this renovation, and starting to put my house back together. It’s getting close to the end. 🙂

    Wishing you all a Happy, Healthy Memorial Day and weekend.

    Stay Safe!
