NFRS warns of increased risk of fire when drinkingEnjoy the summer safely warns of increased risk of fire when drinking<p>While many people will be enjoying a drink this summer, Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service is warning people that alcohol can increase the risk of a fire. </p><p>Drinking increases the likelihood of a fire, particularly from cooking or cigarettes, because it inhibits the ability to make safe decisions.  It also affects the ability to recognise, and respond appropriately to, the signs of a fire.  Once a fire has started, alcohol can heighten feelings of disorientation, making it difficult to escape.</p><p>Fire Investigation Officer Bobbie-Jay Slack said: "Sadly, we have seen the fatal consequences of alcohol-related fires and don't want anyone else to suffer a similar fate.  If you've been drinking, there is the potential for things to go wrong - when your attention stops, fire can start.  We want people to enjoy themselves, this summer, but ask that they do so safely. </p><p>"We would urge people to think twice about attempting to cook after consuming alcohol and, perhaps, order a takeaway instead.  Equally, if they've been drinking, people should be extra careful to make sure they dispose of smoking materials properly or, even better, not smoke at all."<br></p>
