With spring having just begun, summer will be here before you know it. Many of us will therefore be looking to soak up the sun and attend various events, festivals and concerts over the bank holidays and weekends to come. It is extremely important that if you are planning on running any of these events, you meet the necessary fire safety regulations.
With regards to the health and safety of your upcoming event, you will need to consider a range of different factors, including crowd management, hazards, disability access and fire safety. The latter is incredibly important and involves various measures to help keep your guests and attendees safe.
Fire safety includes many different aspects, including escapes, access and fire-fighting equipment such as fire extinguishers or hoses. Fire extinguishers are one of the most important pieces of equipment you will need to have for your event.
They are one of the best ways to control a fire in its early stages and are therefore essential in reducing the risk to other people at the event. Additionally, they are simple and easy to use, which allows for fast and responsive action to be taken against a fire. There are, in fact, many different types of fire extinguishers that should be used against different types of fires, including water, powder, foam and CO2 fire extinguishers.
If you already have a fire extinguisher, you will need to check if this requires servicing before your event. Fire extinguishers need to be regularly serviced and maintained to ensure that they are in a full working order in case they are ever called upon.
If you have an upcoming event this spring or summer, contact local fire safety specialists Hydrofire. We supply and service fire extinguishers to ensure that you are in line with British health and safety regulations ahead of your event.
