Garden safety reminder

Date: 2nd March, 2021

Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service is reminding the public about the importance of garden safety following an incident involving an out-of-control bonfire last week.

Spring is almost here which means lighter evenings and warmer weather are on their way, so it’s likely that many will want to start getting out in the garden and perhaps burning garden waste – especially since many household recycling centres aren’t in full operation.

Station Manager Richard Humphrey said: “We are asking the public to remember the importance of fire safety in the garden, and in turn, ensure our resources can be used for the vital support of our communities. Bonfires are very common in the spring and summer, but they can get out of control very easily. If you want to burn off garden waste, please follow our safety advice, and never use flammable liquids such as petrol or paraffin to start a bonfire.”

Other top tips for the safe use of bonfires include:
