In view of the past dry and hot weather and continuing forecasts for this coming week and weekend, Noisily Festival would like to remind everyone attending the event about the risks associated with heat and fire.
Please read the below attentively and encourage others to do so:
Beat The Heat!
- Drink Plenty of water and always carry a bottle of water with you
- Do not drink excessive amount of alcohol, it will dehydrate you
- Rest, take breaks away from the stages and in the shade, make sure you get enough sleep!
- Bring a sun hat and shades for your camp
- Eat plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables
- Soak, use the showers onsite, carry a wet towel or flannel with you
- Dress Down, wear lightweight, light-coloured loose clothes
- Make yourself aware of the location of the Medics onsite. If you feel unwell make sure you tell someone.
- Don’t forget to wear sun cream!
Fire Safety At the Festival
Did you know?
- A fire can destroy a tent in 60 seconds
- Each year in England, almost 27,000 fires are started every year!, an average of 73 fires a day! 50,000 occur in refuse and rubbish containers each year.
Please read the following advise carefully:
- Camp fires are not allowed anywhere onsite
- If you smoke, dispose of your cigarettes and other smoking materials properly and safely before leaving the area where you smoked.
- Bring a disposable ash tray
- Use the cigarette disposal facilities provided onsite
- Do not take glass to the festival, glass can start a fire in the sunlight.
- Do not bring barbecues, they are not allowed onsite.
- Do not use portable gas stoves in or near your tent. We would prefer if you did not bring them at all.
- Do not bring candles, they are not allowed onsite. Bring an electric torch instead.
- Make sure you know how to escape from your tent by cutting your way out of the tent if there is a fire.
- Never Smoke inside your tent!
- Fireworks and Chinese lanterns are not allowed onsite.
- Make yourself aware of the location of the nearest fire point and emergency exit.
- If you see a fire, keep calm and raise the alarm by alerting the nearest member of security, steward or staff.
- Only tackle a fire if you are trained to do so and never put yourself at risk
