When enjoying a fire pit, please keep a few thoughts in mind...
Be prepared to extinguish the fire.
Always keep a hose, water supply, sand bucket or fire extinguisher within reach when using your outdoor fireplace or fire pit. At the end of the evening make sure your fire is completely out before leaving your outdoor fireplace or fire pit unattended.
Be courteous to your neighbors.
Check with your neighbors, they may have a medical condition that could be severely affected by the smoke from your fire. If wind conditions exist that can blow the smoke into their homes, refrain from burning or relocate the fire pit to a different area in your yard.
