OUTDOOR COOKING SAFETY TIPS

May is National Barbecue Month, but a grill placed too close to anything that can burn is a fire hazard, so be safe. Grills can be very hot, causing burn injuries. Whether smoking, braising or grilling outdoors, keep several important outdoor cooking safety tips in mind: • Propane and charcoal BBQ grills should only be used outdoors. • The grill should be placed well away from the home, deck railings

and out from under eaves and overhanging branches. • Keep children and pets at least 3

feet away from the grill area. • Keep your grill clean by removing grease or fat buildup from the grills and in trays below the grill. • Never leave your grill unattended. • Always make sure your gas grill lid is open before lighting it. See more tips related to the specific type of grill you have (charcoal vs. propane) at www.nfpa. org.

• Fireworks cause almost 19,000 injuries each year. Young people between the ages of 5-19 have a disproportionate number of injuries based on the population. Fireworks should only be used with proper adult supervision. • Keep a garden hose or fire extinguisher nearby in case of problems. • Keep a bucket of water in which to place used wire sparklers. Sparklers account for a quarter of all fireworks injury-related trips to emergency rooms. Sparklers burn at 1,200 degrees and can cause third degree burns in a fraction of a second. • Do not aim bottle rockets, roman candles and other fireworks that leave the ground toward people, buildings or vehicles. • Report any fires in buildings, vehicles or green spaces by calling 911 immediately.

SWIMMING SAFETY

The public beaches across the state are also expected to be busy this Fourth of July holiday weekend, and the DNR reminds swimmers to follow these safety guidelines: • Swim in designated areas • Wear a lifejacket and always swim with a buddy or let someone know where you are at all times. • Avoid areas with waves or rip currents.

SAFETY A MAIN FOCUS THIS FOURTH OF JULY HOLIDAY WEEKEND

State and local law enforcement agencies will be focusing on safety this Fourth of July holiday weekend as thousands are expected to travel across the state and take advantage of recreational opportunities offered by Iowa’s natural resources. The Iowa DNR Law Enforcement Bureau will be focusing efforts on the boatingwhile-intoxicated law as part of the national Operation Dry Water campaign to draw public attention to the hazards of boating under the influence.

Iowa DNR Conservation Officers will be heavily patrolling Iowa waterways over the Fourth of July holiday. The DNR will be conducting heightened awareness and enforcement of laws prohibiting boating under the influence in hopes of decreasing the number of crashes causing injuries and deaths and removing any impaired boat operators

in order to provide a safe and enjoyable experience for boaters this season. “Often times, people don’t realize the warm temperatures and sun, along with the wind and waves, can cause the effects of alcohol to be intensified much quicker,” said Susan Stocker, boating law administrator and education coordinator for the Iowa DNR. “Operators may not think they are over the limit, but their judgment, reaction time, balance and vision show otherwise.”
