Safety Alert

by kpmautner

Call this a Public Service Announcement.

With spring and summer hopefully on the way, something that most people don’t think about: aerosol cans.
Do NOT, under any circumstances, ever, ever, ever, toss an aerosol can into an open flame. Do not use an aerosol near an open flame.  The picture below is not appetizing, but my friend is a visual reminder of what can happen. (And that’s after a  trip to the emergency room and stitches.)  Do not burn trash without being sure that there are no aerosol cans in the pile.


An inch or two either way and this person could have lost teeth or an eye. A really close call, and the person wasn’t even aware that there was an aerosol can in the trash.
