Top Tailgate Safety Tips for the Baseball Season
Summer is upon us, which means the boys of summer are playing, the air is warm, and baseball season is back in full swing! Which means so is tailgating!
Before the game, tailgating allows us to bond with fellow sports fans over the grill and cool beverages. However, it also presents some hazards that shouldn’t be overlooked!
Pack Your Cooler Correctly
Nothing spoils your tailgate fun more than spoiled food, so before you leave the house, always make sure that your perishable items are in an insulated cooler. Make sure there’s enough ice inside to keep your food at a safe temperature. Pack your cooler with the heavier, liquid items on the bottom.
Now that you’ve arrived it is time to get grilling! Make sure to place your grill at least 6 feet away from any cars and other combustibles. Never grill on or in your vehicle (it happens more than you think!). In addition, never leave your grill unattended and keep pets and children away from the grill at all times.
Get a Designated Driver
Don’t ruin the fun by making a bad decision. Make sure that you designate a driver at the beginning of the day so that everyone gets home safely. By assigning a designated driver before the game, you eliminate the possibility of an impaired driver getting behind the wheel, which allows you to focus your energy and excitement on the big game.
