Grill Safety S A F FAMILY E ü Check the gas cylinder hose and Grill Safety S A F FAMILY E ü Check the gas cylinder hose and tank valve for ü leaks before using it for the first time each year. A light soap and water solution applied to the hose and valve will quickly reveal escaping propane by releasing bubbles.

If the leak stops, get the grill serviced by a professional before using it again. If the leak does not stop, call the fire department. If you smell gas while cooking, immediately get away from the grill and call the fire department. Don’t try to move the grill. For more safety resources, visit safetycenter. navy. mil

Grill Safety S A F FAMILY E ü If you have a charcoal grill, Grill Safety S A F FAMILY E ü If you have a charcoal grill, remember that this ü ü type of fuel produces carbon monoxide (CO) when it is burned. CO is a colorless, odorless gas that can accumulate to toxic levels in closed environments. Never burn charcoal inside of homes, vehicles, tents, or campers. Since charcoal produces CO fumes until the charcoal is completely extinguished, do not store the grill indoors with freshly used coals. Purchase the proper starter fluid and store the can out of reach of children, and away from heat sources. Never add charcoal starter fluid when coals or kindling have already been ignited, and never use any flammable or combustible liquid other than charcoal starter fluid to get the fire going.
