Fire safety talk cancelled

The Boat Fire Safety talk by Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service on Sunday 10th April in the Cross Guns has unfortunately been cancelled due to staff shortages in the Fire and Rescue Service. You can contact Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service on 01380 732972 to arrange a boat fire safety visit.

Here are some fire safety tips that firefighters have shared with boaters:

*Fit a suitable smoke detector and carbon monoxide alarm.
*Make a fire action plan.
*Take extreme care when refuelling with petrol or changing gas cylinders.
*Avoid using portable gas equipment on-board, where possible, and store all gas canisters in special gas lockers or open places where any leaks will flow overboard.
*Routinely check items such as battery terminals and fuse box connections for damaged strands or signs of overheating.
*Take care when doing repairs, and keep interiors well ventilated when using adhesives, paints and spirit based products.
