08 Jun Barbecue Safety Tips
Everyone loves a good barbecue party, and no one likes disastrous aftermath. To avoid the latter from happening, please review the most current barbecuing codes and laws for your area. Codes and laws may differ from city-to-city, or county-to-county. Here are some things you might want to consider:
- Are you allowed to barbecue on your porch or in your backyard at all?
- How far does the grill have to be from your trees, bushes, and your neighbor’s property?
- What kind of barbecue grills can you use? Are you allowed to use gas or coal grills allowed to use?
You need to be careful of the proximity of your grill to other things that could potentially catch fire and even explode; you should also have a fire extinguisher on hand just in case. You will also need to be aware of any young children who may be present at the barbecue and make sure they do not get too close to the fire. One more tip: it would be helpful if multiple people knew how to operate the barbecue and how to use the fire extinguisher.
Why are we, Riverside Bail Bonds, talking about barbecuing and safety tips? Because we have bailed people out of jail for mishandling their barbecue. Most often they are accused of negligence or even child endangerment in the more extreme cases. We do not want this to be you, so we hope you take note seriously. However, accidents do happen.
