Waco, TX (PRWEB) June 11, 2012 - Grills are the center for outdoor living during the warmer months, and are a great way to entertain guests during the weekends. When you prepare your home for the Spring and Summer months it is important to do a safety check and tune-up all the gear you’ll be using during the new season.
During the warmer season people tend to use their outdoor patios and living areas up to 20 times a month; therefore, the risk for accidents highly increases. Most home fires that happen are due to patio appliances not being properly inspected.
According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) in 2005-2009, U.S. fire departments responded to an average of 8,200 home fires involving grills, hibachis or barbecues per year. These 8,200 fires caused an annual average of 15 civilian deaths, 120 civilian injuries and $75 million in direct property damage.
Here are some simple tips to make sure you are preventing a home fire:
