Safety Tips for Having a Summer Bonfire

5/8/2019 (Permalink)

It's important to be safe when having a bonfire!

Before you set out to the beach or plan a bonfire in your backyard make sure you consider the following safety tips to protect you and your home:

1. Only burn dry material 

2. Check for cables or wires overhead

3. Keep a water source nearby

4. Make sure the fire is at a minimal distance of 5x its height from any structure. 

Embers stay hot for hours when extinguished.  When the fun is over, walk through the yard to clean up chairs and garbage that could easily ignite.  Run water on the pit until you are confident the heat won’t pose a risk.  Be mindful that you don’t spray the fire with a strong jet of water.  Doing so may cause embers to shower the area and ignite your belongings.
