Campfire Safety Tips
Campfire Safety Tips

Orange and yellow flames, dancing in the darkness. Plumes of silver-grey smoke swirling towards the night sky. Glowing embers smoldering, keeping the heart of the fire burning. Listen to the crackling, gently breaking the silence of the night. Sit back, relax and enjoy the hypnotic effect of nature’s television.

Campfires are wonderful things but need to be treated with the utmost of respect.
Follow these few simple rules to stay safe on your camping holiday:

1) Create a circle with rocks or stones to contain the fire and prevent it from spreading.

2) Choose a site away from overhanging branches, this stops accidental fires caused by flames getting too high and igniting nearby foliage. 

3) Keep a bucket of water nearby just in case your fire spreads.

4) Keep excess firewood and kindling well away from the main campfire and always store it upwind to prevent stray embers from igniting it.

5) Make sure children and pets are kept at a safe distance and never leave the fire unattended.

Follow these handy tips on your next camping holiday for a safe, relaxing and stress-free experience.
