Caravan Fire Safety!

Caravan Fire Safety!

 

UK holidays are becoming more and more popular so it is important that you keep both yourself and your guests safe. 

 

It is just as important that a caravan has a working smoke alarm like a home.  Ensure you know what the fire arrangements on the camp site are and where the nearest telephone is.

 

All caravans should be fitted with the below:

 

  • Smoke detector
  • Carbon monoxide detector
  • Powder extinguisher
  • Fire Blanket

 

A fire blanket should be kept in the kitchen area and a powder extinguisher should be kept by the entrance.  Both the smoke and carbon monoxide detector should be tested weekly to ensure the batteries are working. Carbon monoxide detectors have a limited life which is usually between 5-7 years.  A replacement date should be written on a sticker and placed on the unit.  The check button on the alarm relates to the battery only.

 

All alarms and fire fighting equipment should be installed, tested and maintained in a working order by a competent person and be available to inspection by or on behalf of, the Licensing Authority. A logbook should be kept to record all tests and any remedial action.
