- To make sure any fire won't spread, keep your outfit at the required distance from others. See 'Your Pitch' (4.c) for details.
- Carbon Monoxide kills. Keep barbecues out of caravans, motorhomes, awnings and tents. Make sure you keep barbecues away from outfits and hedges and outside of awnings and tents - please don't leave them unattended. Let hot ashes cool down before putting them in the rubbish. Make sure exhaust from generators is properly vented away from occupied areas. Carbon Monoxide is a colourless, odourless, highly poisonous gas that can kill in minutes. Carbon Monoxide poisoning can be caused by any fuel that burns or smoulders. Barbecues can continue to give off Carbon Monoxide for 12 hours after they have been used.
- You'll find Fire Points at every Club site, so when you arrive check where the nearest one is. Then you can raise the alarm if you discover a fire. Also make a note of where the assembly point is. Please read the evacuation notice, too. Fire extinguishers are provided at the fire points. Please make sure you are familiar with their use, prior to attempting to put out a fire.
- If fire breaks out, follow the site staff's instructions. Keep your children safe by making them aware of the danger of emergency services rushing to the scene.
- We recommend that you have a fire extinguisher, fire blanket and smoke alarm in your outfit. They should be checked and serviced regularly so they're always ready to use. Fire buckets are very handy, too, but must not be used on electrical fires.
