Default Deck saftey

Well ...it's that grillin time O' year.
I just want to remind folks to check their decks for any signs of trouble before loading them up with happy folks enjoying the party.
This really only applies to decks which are 3 feet or more above the ground. However there are people seriously injured and killed when a deck does say: "I just can't hold all this weight".

Check this link for more info, and please...no portable swimming pools up there with your kids in them. I know it's easier to watch them, but you will both be happier on the ground.

Just helping folks enjoy the summer.
