Top 5 Summer Fire Safety Tips Everyone Should Know

02H67023With summer just around the corner, now is a great time to brush up on your fire safety knowledge. No matter if you will be spending the summer indoors, outside, or any combination of the two, there is always the potential to inadvertently start a fire. With that said, the following is an overview of the top 5 summer fire safety tips that everyone should be aware of.

Inspect Campfire Areas 

If you'll be doing any camping or having any events that involve campfires, be sure to inspect the area before lighting the fire. Be sure to get rid of any materials that are potentially flammable as this may make for an uncontrollable blaze rather than a fun little campfire.

Supervise Fireworks

No matter how experienced one may be, be sure to supervise all fireworks displays. No matter how low-risk or safe they may seem, fireworks still deal with fire, which always opens up the potential for an unexpected fire to occur.

Clean the Grill

In addition to that, be sure to clean your grill on the fairly regular basis. Although grills are obviously built to withstand fire, they are not built to endure an abundance of grease build-up. Be sure to clean your grill as often as necessary in order to avoid a grease fire due to build-up.

Create a Wildfire Plan

The summer months represent a time in which the risk of wildfire is elevated. While there is certainly no real way to prevent a wildfire from damaging your home, by meeting with your family and developing an escape plan, you will ensure that you and your family remain safe no matter if/ when the fire hits.

Keep a Bucket of Water Handy

Lastly, in the case of camping, bonfires, fireworks displays, and the like, be sure to keep a bucket of water handy. That way, if a fire or blaze gets out of hand, you can quickly douse it with water in order to manage it or to put it out altogether. Overall, there is a plethora of potential fire risks associated with the summer months. Nevertheless, those who are prepared stand a much better chance of quickly extinguishing the blaze and minimizing damage. Although there is no foolproof method for keeping fires at bay, by taking heed to these tips and any others that are pertinent to the activities you participate in, you will greatly increase your chances of staying fire free all year round.
