 Grill Safe!!


Every year dozens of people are injured and hundreds of fires are reported because of grilling accidents.

Grills need to be kept away from houses, fences, trees and anything else with a propensity for burning. This includes all around the grill as well as above.

The National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA), US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), and Destin Fire Control District recommend the following grill safety tips:


The Florida Fire Prevention Code prohibits the use of charcoal or portable gas grills, or similar devices on any balcony or under any overhanging portion or within 10 feet of any structure.  See the pdf below for further information regarding this statute.
