In Summertime, Smokey the Bear increases his vigilance. But he need not fear every whiff of smoke. After all, it’s barbecue season. As we move into July and August, the smell of grilled goodies fills the air. Many celebrations and picnics over the summer include foods cooked outdoors. It’s the time to get out of the kitchen.
“Where there’s smoke, there’s fire.” Who said that? Was it Smokey the Bear? Regardless, you don’t need smoke signals to know that there’s a barbecue happening. Follow your nose and it will lead you directly to the grill.
Grab your grilling apron, the season is upon us yet again. Philadelphia Fire Department Commissioner Lloyd Ayers was at Jack’s Firehouse recently to demonstrate safe grilling tips at the ninth annual Grilling Safely with the Commissioner.
