Take a tour of Marine Park
Watch our Holiday Video
27 September 2017
This weeks edition of Wyn Wednesdays focuses on the importance on updating LPG gas certificates and follows a call I had from a friend of mine who is a local Royal Life Boat Institute team member.
A fellow Life Boat team member had a fire on his boat due to a LPG gas fire. This fire resulted in the loss of all possessions and the unfortunate burning of the face of his wife. In order to assist Marine Holiday Park sent over a caravan with bedding and equipment to where he lived in order to provide somewhere for him to stay for the time being.
I would like to stress the importance of checking LPG, used in heating appliances and cooking equipment in many caravans. Remember, LPG liquid gas used in caravans and mobile homes is very different from mains gas. Mains gas is lighter than air and if there’s a leak you can open windows and clear excess gas. LPG is heavier than air and drops under the caravan or to floor level, so always be sure to ventilate underneath the caravan or mobile home.
Always keep your gas certificates up-to-date and store them for a minimum of two years. If in doubt, visit the Gas Safe Register website.
On behalf of Marine Holiday Park and all its staff we would like to wish those effected a speedy recovery.
See you next week,
Marine Holiday Park Director
