Grilling: prevent damage and injury by keeping it safe

Every summer, people across the country get out their grills to barbeque food. Along with this fun tradition comes many potential fire and other safety hazards. According to the National Fire Protection Association, gas grills constitute a higher fire risk and between 2007 and 2011, they were involved in an annual average of 7,200 home fires. In December 2012, ESPN SportsCenter anchor Hannah Storm was badly burned while grilling. The NFPA website stated Storm suffered first and second-degree burns on her face, neck, chest and hands when she attempted to re-ignite a flame after the wind had blown it out and caused propane gas to pool and become an explosion hazard. The NFPA suggests these safety tips: propane gas and charcoal 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 away from the grill area. Never leave your grill unattended. (U.S. Air Force photo illustration by Airman 1st Class Thomas Spangler)

Swimming safety serious every single summer

Airmen are reminded to take all precautionary swimming safety steps prior to jumping in the pool, lake or ocean this summer. According to the National Safety Council, preparation is important for all sporting activities, but especially for swimming since drowning accounts for approximately 3,500 deaths every year. Airmen should also refrain from swimming intoxicated as alcohol can affect judgment and body temperature, impairing one’s ability to swim. Children must also be closely monitored around the water, because one in five drowning victims are children 14 years old and younger. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Siuta B. Ika)
