Practice fire safety this summer

Monika Reichelt

As we welcome in the better weather, the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service is asking you to help us reduce your risk of fire by taking some very simple steps.

Whether you’re off camping in the countryside, barbecuing with friends or enjoying a picnic with the family, human behaviour can dramatically reduce your risk of fire.

Take a look at some of the useful information about deliberate fires, how to remain safe from fire when enjoying the countryside, and advice on how you can leave your home ‘fire safe’ if you plan to leave it for an extended period of time.
