The commotion at your watch party for the big game should be caused by the action on the field, not an accident that sends a partygoer to the emergency room. Follow these safety tips to plan your watch party for the game, but remember every party has its own list of safety concerns, so you may need to add some additional precautions for your particular event.
Grill Safety Tips
- Grill placement is key. Place your grill away from your house or apartment building. The patio may seem like the ideal setting for a grill, but the lack of ventilation can cause fire hazards.
- Charcoal grills have unseen dangers. Charcoal grills should never be used indoors, even with ventilation. Burning charcoal produces carbon monoxide, which can be deadly in enclosed spaces.
- Feeling hot, hot, hot. Everyone near the grill should be careful not to touch any of its hot surfaces, even after the grill is no longer in use, to avoid burns.
