College and pro football season is about to kick off, and that means many of us will also be enjoying the traditional tailgate parties. Did you know your homeowner’s insurance can cover your liability if you injure someone during a tailgate party? However, if you bought you insurance online in 7 minutes, you may not have the right personal insurance coverage. Pre-game tailgating gives us the chance to bond with fellow sports fans over the grill and cold beverages, but it also presents a few hazards that shouldn’t be overlooked. Don’t let a great day be spoiled by lack of personal insurance. So call us today and we will gladly review your coverage.
Tailgating Safety Tips
Keep food at a safe temperature while transporting from home to the game
Keep foods separated in plastic bags
When packing the cooler, be sure raw meat and poultry are wrapped securely and separately
Don’t let food sit out for hours
If you serve any fish/shellfish make sure your party guests don’t have allergies. Don’t use the same cook surface for fish and other meat.
Even on cloudy days, you may have a need for sunscreen
Drink lots of water
Pack lots of ice to keep food fresh
Try to monitor drinking; there is nothing worse than a drunk football fan
If you use a grill, make sure you follow all manufactures safety instructions
Don’t use a grill close to any vehicles
Keep lighter fluid away from grill or heat
Always have a fire extinguisher and first aid kit on hand
If you use charcoal briquettes, cool them down prior to storage. A good method is to place them in a bucket of water.
