4 Important Places to Keep EZ Fire Spray this Summer

Help ensure a safe summer by making sure you’re equipped with EZ Fire Spray at the following locations.

From grilling and boating to camping and bonfires, our favorite summer activities require the right supplies to help stay safe. Just like sunscreen and insect repellent, the First Alert EZ Fire Spray is an accessory to have on hand during the summer. Offering an easy-to-use solution in the event a small fire breaks out, the First Alert EZ Fire Spray features a lightweight spray-can design that has no pins or levers – just point and spray. Its small size makes it ideal for storage and travel, and easier to use than a traditional fire extinguisher.

To help stay safe this summer, consider keeping EZ Fire Spray at the following locations:

  1. By the grill. Grilling is a favorite activity for many people, but it’s important to keep safety top of mind, especially when your backyard may be buzzing with guests and summer festivities. Remember to keep your grill in a safe location, away from railings, siding and other flammable materials. Be sure your grill is clean of any leftover food debris or grease before you begin cooking.
  1. At the bonfire. Keep fire pits at least 10 feet away from the house and any other flammable hazards. Keep a close eye on children and pets when you are using the fire pit and ensure that the fire is put out before leaving the backyard.  
  1. Near the fireworks. According to the National Fire Prevention Association, more than 19,500 reported fires are started by fireworks annually. If you’re lighting fireworks, make sure they are legal in your area before buying them. Never try to re-light or pick up fireworks that have not ignited fully, and never use fireworks while impaired by alcohol or drugs.
  1. With the camping gear. Check the weather forecast before your trip, as severe wind and inclement weather can cause problems around the campfire. Some locations will even have a ban on fires if the area is particularly dry, so check the daily regulations of your campground. If you choose to light a campfire, keep it away from overhanging trees, RVs and other structures. When you’re ready to put the fire out, douse it completely in water until no fire or glowing embers remain.

And some activities require specialized gear. If you’re headed out on the boat this summer, make sure that you have a fire extinguisher on board, like this marine fire extinguisher, which fights flammable liquid and electrical fires and is ideal for use on all types of boats. And inspect your watercraft every time you take it out by checking cooling and exhaust systems, electrical wiring, cords and battery-charging equipment; these all could contribute to boat fires.
