Tips for Safe Tailgating

Now that football season is once again upon us, many people are looking forward to enjoying some of the great food and camaraderie that comes from tailgating. However, it’s a good idea to keep some safety tips in mind before you go out to enjoy food with old and new friends at your next tailgating event.

Place cold foods in a cooler that’s filled with ice to help prevent bacteria from growing, which can lead to food poisoning.

Read the safety manual for your gas grill before using it. Even if you are familiar with how to operate the grill, it’s a good idea to brush up before game day, to avoid problems that can come from loosened gas hoses and poor lighting techniques.

Pack a safety kit as well as a fire extinguisher. Even if you think you are going to be safe, it’s prudent to keep safety gear on hand in case of an emergency.
