What type of insurance do you need?

There's nothing like a flame-broiled steak, hamburger or hot dog right off the grill on a summer evening. In fact, many backyard gatherings are centered around the grill and the family's resident chef who is creating all the enticing aromas. In spite of how great grilled foods taste, gas sand charcoal grills account for an average of 10 deaths, 100 injuries and 40 million US dollars in property loss each year, according to the United States Fire Administration. 

To avoid becoming a grilling mishap statistic, we've cooked up the following safety precautions:

1. Don't let children and pets play near the grilling area when cooking until the grill is completely cool and you have a chance to put it away in its designated spot. 

2. Place your grill at least three feet away from other objects including your house, trees and outdoor seating. 

3. Use starter fluid for barbecue grills that use charcoal only. Do not use starer fluid for gas grills.

4. Check the connection between the propane tank and the fuel line to make sure it is not leaking and is working properly before using a gas grill.

5. If you suspect that your gas grill is leaking, turn off the gas and get the unite fixed before lightning. Never use a math to check for leaks. 

6. Do not bring our grill into an ventilated or enclosed space such as the garage of inside of your home. This is not only a major fire hazard, it is also a carbon monoxide hazard.
