 June Fire Prevention Message

Outdoor Cooking and Campfire safety tips

As we begin to spend more time outdoors and enjoy the camping season please follow these steps when grilling outdoors and considerations before you light that campfire.

  • Build campfires at least 25 feet away from tents, vegetation or anything that will burn. 
  • Fire rings, chimeneas, fire pits or outdoor fire places should be at least 15 feet from a structure (house, fence, garage).  It is also not recommended to use these appliances on wooden decks.  
  • Any campfires must always be attended to with an extinguishing source (garden hose, bucket, extinguisher) nearby.
  • If the fire can no longer be attended to please extinguish with water.  Overtime fire wood may dry out and reignite with the right climate considerations.  Dirt can also be used to help avoid a rekindle.
  • Grilling operations must be performed outdoors.  Solid fuels give off carbon monoxide which is harmful to humans and pets.  This also presents a fire hazard to the home.
  • Outdoor cooking should be performed a safe distance from the home or any structure that can burn. Avoid eaves, fences and vegetation.  Make sure the grill is placed on a flat surface and secured. 
  • Know your appliances safety features as well as shut-offs.  Thoroughly review the owner manual.
  • Keep an extinguisher nearby.  Wear clothing or accessories that is secure and will not burn easily.  Hair should always be secured under a hat or hair tie.

*Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of work related death in the United States
  • Always assure that your vehicle is prepared before you drive.  Check the oil, tire pressure, and lighting prior to departure.  Also keep up on any recall notices for your vehicle. 
  • Use all of your safety features.  Seatbelts are a must by law.  Mirrors, backup camera, emergency braking and all other features should remain in use.
  • Drive Sober or designate a driver.  Impairment can be caused alcohol, cannabis products, opioids or any other product that may reduce response time while driving.
  •  Eliminate any distractions while driving.  Cell phones must not be used while driving.  
  • Check the backseat.  25% of cases of child heat stroke in vehicles were work related.  Make it a habit to check your back seat once you arrive at your destination for children or animals.
