Warmer Weather and Outdoor Entertaining
As the days begin to warm up, the natural call to the outdoors comes alive. Whether it’s spending more time cooking on the grill, spending time out on the patio, or by an outdoor portable fireplace, the warm weather draws us out of our homes to spend quality time outside with our friends and family. But when hosting outdoor events we want to make sure that everyone is being safe and we have a few tips that should help keep everyone in the family safe the next time you entertain outside.
If you have any questions about portable fireplaces, seasonal fire safety, or general questions, please contact us at the number below.
