Weekly Safety Message
BBQ Safety Reminder for Silverton and Scotts Mills Residents!
With wildfire season upon us, it's crucial to prioritize safety when enjoying outdoor activities, including barbecuing. Here are some essential tips to keep in mind:
1️⃣ Keep BBQs at a safe distance from homes and structures. Ensure that your barbecue grill is placed in an open area away from any flammable materials such as dry grass, leaves, or overhanging branches.
2️⃣ After your barbecue session, always remember to fully extinguish the flames and embers. Use water to cool down the grill or cooking pit and ensure that there are no smoldering coals. Safety first!
3️⃣ Stay mindful of grease and oil buildup while cooking. Grease can quickly ignite and escalate a fire. Clean your grill regularly, removing excess grease and maintaining a clean cooking surface to minimize the risk of flare-ups.
Let's work together to protect our communities and beautiful surroundings during this wildfire season. Stay vigilant, follow safety protocols, and spread the word to your neighbors and friends!
