Grilling for Father’s Day? Remember These Safety Tips | Florida Injury Attorneys Whittel & Melton


Grilling is a well-liked and fun hobby that brings together families and friends. To avoid mishaps and potential harm, it is essential to put safety first.

Our group of knowledgeable accident injury attorneys have put together a list of priceless suggestions to make sure your grilling session is safe and enjoyable. If you are going to relish the sunshine and grill with your number one guy this Father’s Day weekend, then please remember these grilling guidelines:

  1. Make sure your grill is in a safe distance from all buildings. Set your grill up away from your house, shacks, sheds, etc., as grills can sometimes not be fluid with fire and things like this, so you want to keep them away from any buildings or structures.
  2. If you have any kids or pets, we recommend creating a hot zone around the grill so that they know not to get too close as they could get burned.
  3. If you are cooking with propane, you want to check the fuel line before firing your grill up. The easiest thing to do is to get some soapy water and run it down the fuel line, and if you start to see bubbles, then you probably have a leak and you want to deal with that right away before you start grilling.
  4. Store your propane tanks properly. It is best to store these upright and in a cool place because that is what the literature says to do.
