    Grilling Safety: MA Insurance

    Posted by Gordon Atlantic Insurance

    Protect yourself while still having summer fun with personal coverage from Andrew Gordon Inc Insurance Norwell MASummer for most Americans means “busting out the grill” and hosting some barbecues in the warm weather, whether it be with friends, family, or both. According to the Insurance Information Institute, Americans enjoy more than three billion barbecues each year. By my calculations that’s enough chicken and steak to reach around the circumference of the Earth four times! (I just made that up, but still, there’s a lot of grilling going on). As you prepare a succulent host of BBQ food this year, remember to keep grilling safety in mind!

    Some things to remember:

    1. Wear a protective fire-resistant apron or similar garb, and mitts that reach up to your forearms to avoid burns.
    2. Keep you grill’s gas cylinder AWAY from your house or flammable structures.
    3. Check for leaks often by sprinkling soapy water around the gas valve; if there’s a leak, bubbles will form. Never check for a gas leak by using a match. This can happen.
    4. Make sure the gas is off whenever the grill is not in use.
    5. If using a charcoal grill, only use lighter fluid specified for charcoal grills. NEVER USE GASOLINE. Also never add more lighter fluid once a fire has already started; if needed, add small sticks or other tinder to augment the flame.
    6. When finished, douse coals with water before disposing of them in the trash.
    7. Our specialized outdoor flame/fire consultant advises you to take extra caution when grilling in the woods. Only you can prevent forest fires.
    8. Check grill hoses for cracks or leaks; make sure the hose doesn’t kink.
    9. Keep additional open flames away from the grill.
    10. Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
    11. Never attempt to repair a grill yourself.
    12. Remember that grills can remain hot long after the fire is out.
    13. Be safe and have fun!

    How to Get the Most out of Gordon Insurance: eBooks

    Posted by Gordon Atlantic Staff

    As the social media and web engineer at Gordon Insurance, I know basically everything there is to know about this website. I know the layout of this website, I know the content of this website, and I know how this website interacts with our live staff. I can see it all.

    Now, this is good for me. But maybe you don't know how to "Get the Most out of Gordon", and that poses a problem. So I decided to make a series of blogs to explain how to use our website to your full advantage.

    This first blog is about something I have been updating quite recently, and I'm sure it's something you will enjoy. If you haven't visited Our Free eBooks page, you definitely should. And here's why:

    • top-notch quality insurance information available to you
    • our eBooks are free
    • we are constantly updating the eBooks we offer
    • all it requires is an email address- no commitment or long, strenuous form

    Our eBooks tell you a lot of things that may surprise you. You can learn new information about home insurance, auto insurance, and many other things. One of our most popular downloads is a Teen Driver Kit- a download that includes information about texting laws, jump-starting a car, and even a contract between the parent and the driver.

    Below is a screenshot of the Gordon Insurance home page: As you can see, I've added a red arrow to show you where the Our Free eBooks page is on the side menu. It's simple enough to find, and the side menu is full of other little insurance gems (to be discussed in future "How to Get the Most out of Gordon" blogs).

    Downloads like these are always helpful, never harmful. And since these downloads are right at your fingertips, why not take advantage of them? Sometimes it's easier to read new information about insurance, rather than listen to an agent speak to you over the phone.

    Don't forget about our eBooks! We make them for you only for your benefit. There is insurance information all over the internet, make sure the stuff you read is correct and relevant to you. With Gordon Insurance, you already know that it is.
