Fire Safety Guide 1

Outdoors Only

Only use your grill outdoors! Keep it at least 3 feet (1 meter) from your home, deck and eaves.

3 foot Safe Zone

Keep a 3 foot (1 meter) safe zone around the grill itself. That means no tables, chairs, pets, etc. that could catch fire or be burned.

Fire Safety Guide 2

Keep it Clean

Clean your grill either before or after each use. This prevents grease buildup which can lead to fires and flare ups.

Fire Safety Guide 3

Clean Up

Dispose of all coals in a metal can with a lid once they have cooled. Better yet, close your grill, including all vents and leave them overnight to go out.

Grill Safety

Make sure to open your grill before lighting. Ensure the vents are open and no residual grease is built up.
