Pine Mountain Georgia Fire Department Safety


Burn Your Burgers, Not Your House

Be careful with your grill, and you will not need to wear a self-contained breathing apparatus while cooking your meal.

We all enjoy the taste of steaks, burgers, chicken, hot dogs and more prepared on the grill.

Grilling is as much a part of our culture as baseball, apple pie and visiting the favorite fishing hole. It can be a fun family experience. It can also be very dangerous if you fail to be careful.

Do not leave a grill unattended and keep small children and pets away from the grill. Never use a grill in your home as a source of heat during winter power outages. The carbon monoxide fumes can kill you!
 

Gas Grills

When using a gas grill, follow the manufacturer's instructions. Make a thorough inspection of the grill at the beginning of each cooking season. Gas connections should be checked for leaks by applying a soapy water solution; bubbles will form if gas is escaping.

When the grill is not in use, make sure the gas tank is turned off. Damaged or corroded gas tanks should be replaced and not used. The tanks can be exchanged at many convenience stores. Tanks should not be stored in direct sunlight or in an area where children play.

When transporting a propane tank, make sure it is upright and secured so that it cannot move around. Never leave a propane tank inside a car for any length of time, especially in hot weather.
 

Charcoal Grills

Never use gasoline, kerosene or any other unapproved liquid to light charcoal in a charcoal grill. Instead, use approved lighter fluid. Read and follow the instructions on the lighter fluid container. Never pour lighter fluid on a fire or glowing charcoal. Keep lighter fluid in a safe place out of the reach of small children and pets.

A variety of brands of self-starting charcoal is now available and safer to use than lighter fluid.
