With summer in full swing, it’s important to keep a few safety tips in mind when using a gas grill:

    • Grill outside in an open area away from the house.
    • Don’t store a propane tank in an enclosed area.
    • Come straight home after having a tank filled, and remove it from the car immediately.
    • Don’t use a tank that is dented, rusted, or otherwise damaged.
    • Never buy or accept an exchanged tank if the brass valve has turned a blue or green color.
    • Turn off the burners and close the cylinder valve after each use.
    • Keep an ABC rated fire extinguisher, bucket of sand, or garden hose handy in case of fire.
    • If a gas grill goes out or doesn’t light, turn it off, open the lid and wait at least 5 minutes before trying again.
  • Never leave a lit grill unattended.
