Terra Bites Lawn Service of Braselton, Georgia, would like to make your holiday event is success with a few helpful tips from the Red Cross.

If you’re looking to fire up the grill this weekend, here are a few safety tips to follow while you are cooking up your guest’s delightful feast!  Here are a few grilling safety tips:

  • Do not leave your grill unsupervised at any time when it is in use.grill
  • Although may seem obvious, do not grill indoors or in any enclosed spaces.
  • Keep children, pets and others away from the grilling area while in use.
  • Be sure any objects, such as: tree branches, your deck or anything that could potentially catch fire, is out of the grilling vicinity.
  • Keep yourself (or the grill master) safe from the fire by using tools made for cooking on the grill.

If you’re planning a pool party, be sure to follow basic water safety recommendations. Some of these water safety tips include the following:

  • Do not allow anyone to swim alone! Use the buddy system; however, children should NEVER be left unsupervised watching each other.
  • Make sure young children or inexperienced swimmers use flotation devices such as lifejackets or floaties.
  • If you’re an adult supervising a child or children, be sure to avoid distractions while supervising them, as children can quickly get in over their heads (literally).
  • If you are planning a party by the pool or by any other body of water (large or small), be sure to never leave young children unattended. Small play pools, ponds, creeks and other natural and unnatural areas with water may seem safe, but accidents can happen anywhere, so have always have an adult around to supervise.
