Keep just a few 4th of July safety tips in mind, and you can enjoy your holiday weekend hassle-free.

Grilling is a staple in Independence Day celebrations. Can you blame us for loving the opportunity to grill delicious food for the people we love while enjoying our Southern California weather? Of course not! Just make sure that before you light up your grill, you’ve put safeguards in place. If you’ve got a gas grill, quickly check it for leaks before the holiday weekend. Make sure your grill is positioned at least 10 feet away from your house, nearby foliage that could catch, and any other flammable materials. Teach your kids to steer clear of the grill area, and enlist them in helping to keep their friends and any pets at a safe distance.
In light of the Thomas Fires, most Ventura County residents will most likely be practicing extra care with their fireworks this year. The Ventura County Fire Department has a brief list of firework safety guidelines as a good refresher. Even sparklers can be dangerous. They can burn at temperatures of up to 2000 degrees C! If you’re burning sparklers this 4th of July, keep a few buckets of water nearby to safely douse them.
