Ears of CornMemorial Day is quickly approaching and for many people the commemorative holiday marks the beginning of summer and with it, the grilling season.

NFPA recommends that grillers pay particular attention to safety, especially in June and July, when home fires involving grilling accidents occur most often. When grilling, NFPA suggests the following:

 Stay alert when grilling. Do not grill if you are sleepy or drinking. Don’t leave your cooking or grill area unattended. Keep children and pets at least three feet away from the grill area. Remove all flammable materials from around the grill.

NFPA provides additional grilling safety information, grilling tips, and a grilling safety tip sheet on the NFPA web site.
