Devon & Somerset Fire & Rescue Service remind you that having a working smoke alarm in your caravan dwelling, is just as important as the one in your home. It needs to be tested frequently to check it works.
In a fire, caravans and campervans have limited escape options in fire and being made of lightweight and highly combustible fittings, fires can take off frightenly fast. You would have just a few seconds to get out of a burning caravan. The warning a smoke alarm gives can mean the difference between life and death.
Never bring a BBQ inside as the carbon monoxide that they produce can kill you. Carbon monoxide (CO) is difficult to detect because it is colourless and has no taste or smell. People often don’t realise that they are being overcome by fumes until it is too late.
