If you are having a barbecue during Carnival, please make sure you place it on a flat surface on level ground so it does not tip over. Never use petrol or paraffin to light it. Also make sure you keep the barbecue away from fences, sheds or garden furniture. If fire breaks out, warn other people and get out and stay out. Call the fire brigade by dialling 999.
The London Fire Brigade carries out home fire safety visits and will fit a free smoke alarm where needed.
