Hazardous Lighters- Fire Risk

Be aware as the hotter weather comes around to make sure lighters are stored properly.  This lighter blew up and could have caused a lot of damage. Not everyone gets a second chance.

Lighters left in cars can often over heat with temperatures exceeding 120 degrees. With BBQ season coming around it’s easy to see matches and lighters being left out by the grill. They should be stored out of the sun and in an area free from any flammable material.

Camping season has already started for some and with Memorial Day right around the corner the fire risk increases.  Take the Smokey the Bear pledge to help prevent forest fires. There’s already been more than  half a million acres burned this year.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission has a lot of grill safety tips.

Please check on your elderly neighbors as they can often be forgetful and not realize the danger. You just might save lives! Young children are often fascinated with fires, make sure they understand the risk.

Above all enjoy the grilling, camping season.
