Happy Independence Day from Affordable American Insurance

 In Fun, Safety


Firing up the grill is one of my favorite summer activities.  Anytime when it is extremely dry out, it increases the danger level of  grilling. Fires from grilling cause $80 million in property damage each year.  Most of these cases can be prevented with these simple steps.

Preventative Steps:

  1. Use your grill only outside.
  2. Use your grill in a well-ventilated area.
  3. Don’t have your propane tank in an enclosed area.
  4. Keep the grill in a stable environment.

Tips for using your grill:

  1. Once the grill is lit, always have someone watch it.
  2. Never attempt to move a hot grill.
  3. Keep your distance from hot grills because they remain hot for more than an hour after use.

If you are planning on camping this weekend please be careful.  There are many Colorado fires that are raging on.  Safety should be your number one concern.  If you think it might be too dangerous it probably is.


With Colorado temperatures well above average, sometimes a trip to the pool can be what you need.  Remember to put on a lot of sunscreen and drink plenty of water.  You don’t always know when your body is dehydrated when you are in the water.   Have Fun!
