Outdoor Fire Safety

6/21/2019 (Permalink)

We all love sitting outside in the summer and enjoying an outdoor fire.

When you are building a fire pit:

Make sure it's downwind of your camp site or any backyard items.

Clear out a 10 foot radius of space around your pit.

Make sure there isn't any tree limbs hanging down as well.

Check local weather conditions and be sure you are in the safe zone.( Dry, windy weather for example can be a bad time to have an outdoor fire.)

When you have finished enjoying the fire make sure it's out. (Even if the embers are gray it doesn't mean it's safe.)

Pour water on the fire and then stir it with a shovel to test for any hot spots

Enjoy the lazy days of summer, roasting marshmallows and being with friends, but don’t be lazy about outdoor fire safety. Enjoy your summer!
