State Fire Marshal’s Office Urges Safety with Outdoor Grilling
tn.gov Wednesday June 8, 2016

NASHVILLE – While summer is the perfect time to gather with family and friends for a BBQ, the State Fire Marshal’s Office (SFMO) warns that it is also the peak season for outdoor grilling fires. The SFMO reminds outdoor cooks to make fire safety a priority as they start up the grill this summer.

From 2011-2015, Tennessee fire departments responded to 206 fires involving grills, hibachis or barbeques. Those fires resulted in four civilian injuries, four firefighter injuries and $6.2 million in property damage, according to the Tennessee Fire Incident Reporting System (TFIRS).

“Practice safety whenever you grill,” said State Fire Marshal and Commerce & Insurance Commissioner Julie Mix McPeak. “Place your grill well away from siding, deck railings, eaves and overhanging branches. Never leave a grill unattended.”

Utilize these additional tips to make your summer cookouts memorable for the right reasons:

General Grilling Tips:

Do not wear loose clothing while cooking at a grill.
Keep children and pets away from the grill area.
Never grill/barbecue in enclosed areas - carbon monoxide could be produced. Propane and charcoal grills should only be used outdoors.
Make sure everyone knows to Stop, Drop and Roll in case a piece of clothing does catch fire.
Call 911 or your local emergency number if a burn warrants serious medical attention.
