Fire prevention tip of the week

Charcoal grill safety tips

Charcoal produces CO when burned. CO is a colorless, odorless gas that can accumulate to toxic levels in closed environments. To reduce these CO poisonings, follow these safety tips:

  • Never burn charcoal inside of homes, vehicles, tents, or campers.
  • Charcoal should never be used indoors, even if ventilation is provided.
  • Since charcoal produces CO until the it is completely extinguished, do not store the grill indoors (inside garages) with the freshly used coals.
