Tips for a Safe Show
First – if you have any questions or requests ask one of the marshalls; they are the harassed looking people wandering around site in hi-viz vests. Your query can either be answered there and then or they can radio through to the right person to help
No one wants an accident marring their enjoyment or worse, nor do they want to be the cause of an accident. We don’t like complicating things or making a whole host of rules and restrictions; fortunately safety is mostly a matter of plain common sense.
Because there are a lot of vehicles, generators and gas appliances the risk of fire is high, simple precautions will help reduce that risk:
- Keep cans of fuel stored upright well away from naked flame or hot metal
Switch off generators or vehicle engines before refuelling. Allow gennies to cool down before refuelling. Diesel generators preferred
Secure propane cylinders upright to a post or similar and in a well ventilated area at least 2m from the appliance they are connected to
- Do not leave appliances unattended when in use
If you discover a fire only attempt to put it out if there is no risk to you otherwise alert the on-site fire service or one of the marshalls. It is now part of our code of conduct that vehicles and tents contain a fire extinguisher suitable to task
The ONLY type of extinguisher to use on oil and fat fires is the wet chemical type the others are either ineffective or, in the case of a water extinguisher will cause the fire to explode. USE ONLY THE WET CHEMICAL EXTINGUISHER ON OIL OR FAT FIRES or use a fire blanket
