Grilling and Campfire Safety Tips
Consider using a propane stove or barbecue grill instead of an open fire when it's dry and windy.
Put barbecue grills over bare dirt or other fire resistant surfaces and away from dead grass and weeds. Never transport a barbecue pit or grill with live coals.
Build campfires in open, level spots away from trees and overhanging branches and preferably in designated fire rings or fire receptacles.
Never leave a campfire or cooking fire unattended. Completely extinguish the fire with water before leaving it. The ashes and coals are not safe to leave until they are cool enough to touch.
