Fall is here and cooler temperatures are in the forecast. That means that it’s the perfect time of year to sit around your fire pit with family and friends. While fire pits are fun and cozy, they can also be dangerous if you don’t practice caution. That’s why we’d like to share some fire pit safety tips with you:

  • Place your fire pit on level ground and remove objects that could be tripping hazards from around the fire pit.
  • Always closely monitor pets and small children when your fire pit is in use.
  • Make sure to fully extinguish the fire pit when you are done.
  • Never leave your fire pit unattended. 
  • Place your fire pit at least 10 feet around from trees, plants, and buildings.
  • When your fire pit is in use, keep something at hand to extinguish the fire if needed, such as a bucket of water or sand, a fire blanket, or a fire extinguisher.
  • Surround your fire pit with non-combustible materials like stone or brick. 

Fire pits are great fun, but they should always be handled with care and caution to keep everyone safe!
