Firefighters reach out to boating community during Boat Fire Safety Week

FIREFIGHTERS from Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service will be reaching out to the boating community across the county this 'Boat Fire Safety Week' to help prevent on board deaths from fires and carbon monoxide.

The national Fire Kills Boat Fire Safety Week, which runs from 29 May 2017 to Sunday, 4 June 2017, will see firefighters visit boat owners in Liverpool's Albert Dock, Salthouse Dock and Canning ½ Tide Dock to hand out leaflets about carbon monoxide and fire safety on boats, to inform crew members of risks and give advice on how to protect themselves.

An awareness event will also be held between 6pm and 8pm, at Liverpool Marina, on Wednesday, 31 May 2017, for Marina members.

Firefighters and representatives from the Maritime and Coastguard Agency will hand out free carbon monoxide and smoke alarms and deliver a presentation about boat fire and CO safety.

Timed for the start of the boating season, the message of the campaign is that all crew members should understand the risks and follow the published advice from the Boat Safety Scheme, which can be found online.

Gary Oakford, Group Manager for Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service, said:- "Across the UK, 30 boaters were killed in boat fires in the last 20 years and another 30 lost their lives to highly toxic gas. We are looking forward to engaging with members of the boating community during Boat Fire Safety Week, to give them help, advice and support about how to stay safe on board their vessels. Working smoke and CO alarms are critical in preventing unnecessary deaths and we will be making these available to members of Liverpool Marina. We would urge all members of the boating community across Merseyside to visit the Boat Safety Scheme website for tips and advice about how to reduce the risk of boat fires and stay safe."

Formby to remember the Manchester Bombing Victims

THE Formby Pool Trust, on Elbow Lane, will be hosting a remembrance on the grounds. The small event is to take place at 11am, on Saturday, 26 May 2017. This is event is to be situated at the heart of Formby Village and will be led by Churches Together in Formby, Altcar and High Town.
