Memorial Day Grill Safety Tips

Baltimore City Fire Department Offer Help to 
Prevent outdoor Grilling fires!

As we prepare for grilling season, the members of BCFD would like you to have a fun, yet safe holiday. While doing so, it's important to remember the following safety tips when grilling at home:

  • Grills are to be used only outdoors, away from siding and deck railings
  • You should clean grills often and remove grease or fat build-up
  • Make sure your gas grill lid is open before lighting
  • Have a 3-foot safe-zone around grills and keep kids and pets away from the area
  • Dispose of charcoal after they have cooled in a metal can
  • Never leave grills, fire pits and patio torches unattended
