Grilling season might have kicked off back in May, with Memorial Day, but with the long summer days, kitchens too warm for cooking, and the Fourth of July weekend, it’s official: it’s time to grill.
Unfortunately, grilling season overlaps with grilling injury season. In fact, according the National Fire Protection Association, nearly 17,000 people went to the emergency room because of injuries involving grills in 2012.
As if that’s not bad enough, each year an average of 8,800 home fires are caused by grilling. Add it all up, and it’s an annual average of $37 million in damages—and 10 deaths, according to the US Fire Administration.
This summer, these common-sense tips will help you keep your family, your home, and yourself safe when you’re manning the grill.
