Kaneohe Neighborhood Board April 15
HFD fire tip of the month
Take care with propane grills. Propane is invisible and highly explosive. If you grill doesn't light in 10 seconds, turn it off, keep it open so the gas can dissipate and wait five minutes before trying to light it again.
Use only approved lighter fluid when ligting charcoal grills. Do not leave a charcoal grill unattended and make sure the coals are cold before disposing of them. Mix water into the ash and make sure any charcoal that floats is throughly wet so it sinks.
HPD reports that safe robberies are up. Be sure your safe is secured to something solid.
