Rotherham folk having barbecues in the hot weather are being urged to take steps to make their event safe.
Diane Malpass, SYFR head of community safety, said: “Many people will be taking advantage of the beautiful May weather this weekend and after weeks of rain, who can blame them. All we are saying is before you get started with the sausages and kebabs, take a minute to decide where you’re going to site it. Then, when the coals are properly cooled, dispose of them safely.”
To make sure your barbecue goes to plan:
·Site it on a flat surface well away from trees, shrubs and grassland.
·Keep a bucket of water or sand close by.
·Never use petrol or paraffin on a barbecue, only recognised lighters and starter fuels.
·Make sure the coals have properly cooled before disposal and empty ashes onto bare soil, not into the bin.
Barbecues continue to give off the deadly gas even after the coals are cool. So if you are camping you should never use barbecues inside tents, or to stay warm indoors.
