When are we able to use our barbecue grills outside?
Even though The Woodlands has experienced a small amount of rain, the fire department still discourages the use of charcoal grills and would prefer that you use the propane type. However if you wish to utilize charcoal grills, please be aware of the weather conditions and most importantly, your surroundings. Place the grill in an area well away from any dry or dead vegetation, constantly monitor while cooking and have a water supply available in case any sources of ignition leave the container. If the wind speed is high enough to blow any embers outside of the grill container, you are encouraged not to use charcoal or wood. For additional questions, please call the fire department at 281-367-3444. Should you observe any uncontrolled open flame, please dial 911 for emergency services.
