Summer fire safety

Posted on the 3rd August 2022

With temperatures set to rise this weekend, it’s a great opportunity to get outside and enjoy the weather. But it also means that it’s even easier for fires to start outside.

Here are a few tips to make sure everyone stays safe:

  • Never throw a lit cigarette on the floor or out of a car window as it could easily set light to dry grass
  • Use barbecues on hard, flat surfaces away from grass, shrubs and fences
  • Don’t leave glass bottles on the ground – the sun can reflect through them and set light to the grass
  • Don’t store highly flammable liquids like gasoline, lighter fluid or kerosene close to your barbecue, as stray flames can easily ignite them and start a fire
  • Keep fire doors closed to prevent any fire from spreading inside
  • Do not have bonfires as they can spread very quickly when the ground is dry
