Mobility scooters offer a lifeline to many people giving mobility and independence. Chances are you know someone who uses one or maybe you use one yourself, so here are some reminders on how to store scooters safely.
Firstly, storing scooters out of the way means you have a clear escape route in the event of a fire so it’s important not to store them in communal halls and stairwells. Scooters left on charge overnight or whilst you’re out can be a common cause for fire, therefore make sure they are serviced regularly and keep an eye on them whilst they are charging. Finally scooters can be everyday trip hazard so make sure they are not blocking paths or doorways.
By keeping communal areas clear, you are helping to keep you, your family and neighbours safe.
