Grilling and Bonfire Safety Tips for Homeowners
Warmer weather in Wisconsin brings us all outdoors to enjoy backyard grilling and time around a bonfire. But with that fire-time fun comes an added level of fire risk.
According to the National Fire Protection Association, fire departments from 2014–2018 went to an annual average of 8,900 home fires involving grills, hibachis or barbecues per year, including 3,900 structure fires and 4,900 outside or unclassified fires.
To help you grill safer, the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) has created a valuable grilling safety sheet filled with tips for all types of grills.
The NFPA also provides smart ways you can keep your fire pit safe throughout the bonfire season.
