Fire safety talk and boaters action group, Honey Street, 12th December

There will be a Boat Fire Safety talk by Dorset and Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service at 7.30pm on Monday December 12th 2016 at the Barge Inn, Honey Street, Pewsey SN9 5PS, followed by the K&A boaters action group meeting.

A massive 28% of boat fires cause fatalities. Don’t let this happen to you!! Come and find out how to prevent fire hazards on your boat. There will be FREE smoke and carbon monoxide alarms, and firefighters will be giving advice on how to minimise fire and carbon monoxide risks from solid fuel stoves, generators, engines, fuel and electrics.

Please stay for the meeting at 8.30pm if you need any information about CRT enforcement letters, texts or emails or if you want to be involved in the next boaters towpath tidy or in action to challenge CRT’s current enforcement policy against boaters without home moorings.

The boaters action group aims to defend and promote the boating community on the K&A. It meets on the second Monday of every month in different places along the canal. Please contact info@boatingcommunity.org.uk or 07928 078208 if you want to come. We hope to see you there.

There will be a series of boat fire safety talks this winter in canalside pubs along the K&A, organised by Julian House Travelling Communities Support Service in conjunction with the fire service. Look out for the next one if you can’t make it to Honey Street. If you can’t get to any of the talks, you can contact Dorset and Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service on 01380 732972 to arrange a boat fire safety visit. If it’s an emergency ring 999.
