Caravan & Motorhome

Fire Safety in your Caravan/Motorhome

Do I need a fire extinguisher in my motorhome or caravan? Yes, absolutely, it’s your secondary place of living (residence potentially), sharing space with loved ones (family etc), so you also cook and use electricals in a smaller space. There is always a risk of fire in your campervan or caravan, and remember there is a limited means of escape from the exit.

There are Up to 360 caravan fires in the UK per annum, and with camping, caravans & motorhomes increasing over the last 2 years, this figure is bound to increase comparatively year on year.

We know that Space in a caravan/motorhome is at a premium, storing a traditional 2kg extinguisher which is up to 4x larger as well as 10x heavier as well as a fire blanket can take away precious space. The fire safety stick can be stored simply using the provided wall bracket.

It’s also important to have the right type of fire extinguisher on board,

When exploring the great outdoors and touring the countryside, being creating memories, spend time with those closest to you, and sharing life’s small moments, knowing that you are always protected if the need arise.

The Worlds Lightest

Traditional extinguishers last 5 years max and must be serviced EVERY YEAR

The Fire Safety Stick

Dan from YouTube channel Carrs & Caravan recently bought a 25 second Fire Safety Stick for his caravan. Unknown to the team here at FSS HQ, we weren’t aware of his plans to review it.

So for a completely unbias review, click on the video below to see his thoughts on it and whether its good to keep in the caravan instead of the traditional extinguisher you may consider to carry.

Case Studies

“This was just what I was looking for – a fire extinguisher that is light, effective and does not leave a mess. I hope I never have to use it but I am very glad to have one in the Caterham and another in our Airstream trailer.”

C. Hudson

“Nice & lightweight & easy to fit in space. Hopefully it will work if it’s ever needed, with luck I won’t be finding out!”
