CELEBRATE SAFELY - Avoid Fire Damage from Outdoor Grills
Happy Memorial Day from SERVPRO of Northwest Cincinnati!
Memorial Day is a day of remembrance for those who have died in service of the United States of America. It is a very important holiday, established to give us a time to honor and remember the men and women who have sacrificed their lives by serving our country.
Many people consider Memorial Day to be the unofficial start of the summer season. And with the summer season, comes family picnics and outdoor grilling. According to the U.S. Fire Administration, grill fires cause an estimated $37 million in property loss each year. Patios, terraces, screened-in porches and courtyards are leading home locations for grill fires.
