With the camping and caravanning season now upon us we thought we should let you know some of the rules around keeping you safe from fires whilst on a campsite.
The Caravan Sites and Control of Development Act 1960 and the Department of Communities and Local Government state that every Caravan site should have the following:
Fire Points – No caravan should be more than 30 metres from a fire point, 90 for a touring site. The fire points should also be weather-proof, easily visible & accessible and clearly marked ‘FIRE POINT’.
Fire warning – An easily accessible means to raise an alarm in the event of a fire should be provided at each fire point. This can be a manually operated sounder or hand operated siren. For the inside of a caravan it is a legal requirement to have a fire alarm and carbon monoxide detector, kept in working order.
Whether you need to create fire points or just have your current fire points assessed / serviced, Prestige Safety Services can offer top advice and service at a low price to help you meet your legal obligations without breaking the bank.
