    FIRE SAFETY Info and TIPS of the WEEK

    Propane grills -- Check the cylinder hose for leaks. A light soap and water solution applied to the hose will reveal escaping propane by releasing bubbles. If there's a leak, turn it off and get the grill serviced before using it. If the leak does not stop, call the fire department. 911.
