The fire service in Hertfordshire is targeting boat owners in a new safety campaign.
It is working in partnership with the Boat Safety Scheme and will teach boat owners about the dangers of fire and carbon monoxide poisoning.
Nationally, in the past 20 years, 30 boaters have been killed in boat fires and 30 lost their lives to the ‘silent killer’ carbon monoxide.
Leaflets are being handed out at boatyards and marinas across Hertfordshire, urging boat owners to deal with the threats posed to their boats and passengers.
There will also be a couple of special awareness events this month. Fire crews will be talking to boat owners at the Ware Boat Festival on 6 July, and they will be hosting a boat safety event at the Lea Valley Marina, Stanstead Abbotts, on 13 July.
