Stay safe on the waterways this summer

Think about fire safety when enjoying Oxfordshire’s waterways this summer.

Narrowboats on a canal

With so much water around, there can be a tendency to think that there is a reduced risk of fire.  In fact, fires on boats can spread quickly and as boats are often in remote locations, it can take firefighters longer to arrive at an incident.

Smoke alarms can make a real difference to the outcome of fires on boats.  We want all boat users to be aware of the risks and want to see suitable smoke alarms installed in all boats with overnight accommodation.

You can’t see, feel or smell carbon monoxide but it can be fatal if you breathe it in. In an enclosed space like a boat carbon monoxide can build up to dangerous levels quickly. Fit a carbon monoxide (CO) detector - check it is suitable for marine use
