Are you planning to take advantage of the warmer weather this month by enjoying barbecues, countryside walks or a spot of camping?
This month’s safety campaign by Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service (RBFRS) includes encouraging people to remember fire safety rules when outdoors.
RBFRS advise to never leave a lit barbecue unsupervised or in the midst of children, sheds and trees.
If visiting the countryside, it is recommended to never throw lit cigarette ends on the ground - to avoid field fires.
When camping, ensure that barbecues are not brought into tents.
Paul Jacques, Prevention Manager, said: "Make sure fire doesn’t ruin your fun."
