Cook with disposable BBQs safely, urges Fire Service

If you're planning to have a barbecue in the sunshine today, ensure you do so safely.

That's the message from the Isle of Man Fire and Rescue Service, who posted to Facebook to issue words of advice to prevent dangerous fires.

Officers said to avoid injuries or damage to property, people and wildlife to follow simple precautions such as ensuring disposable barbecues are on flat surfaces away from sheds, trees or shrubs.

Other tips include ensuring the barbecue is cool before moving it and to keep a bucket of water or sand nearby for emergencies.
