Just yesterday, NFPA vice president for outreach & advocacy, Lorraine Carli, said to me, "I'm not sure anyone would have ever used my name and Martha Stewart in the same sentence!" And she's right, many of us here probably never would have thought about it, but today we're happy to announce that NFPA is now a regular content contributor for Martha Stewart Living (MSL)!
Each month we'll write about a different fire safety topic and share it with the millions of MSL followers. This month, we write about grilling fire safety. Read the post and write a comment. You can also share it with the ones you love! If you don't think that grilling fires are a problem where you live, read our latest blog post here on Fire Break about grilling fires in the WUI. It's a cautionary tale that explains the importance of keeping safety top of mind as you start up the grill, break open the bag of rolls and prepare the hamburger patties.
Come June, we'll focus on outdoor party decorations and the safest way to use lighting displays. For everyone living in high-risk wildfire areas, we'll provide some great tips that don't cost a lot and are simple to do. During the summer and beyond, you'll find additional posts on topics such as wildfire safety (including ways to incorporate Firewise principles into your landscaping routine that'll help keep your yards looking beautiful while at the same time reducing your risk for wildfire damage), Halloween and holiday cooking safety.
We're looking forward to sharing our knowledge and passion for fire safety with our Martha Stewart Living audience in the many months to come. Won't you join us? We look forward to "seeing" you!
