Canal boat safety and security equipment

We list suppliers and installers of canal narrow boat & barge fire, safety & security systems and equipment including detectors, alarms, extinguishers and lifesaving equipment.
Correct safety and fully functioning fire and gas detection equipment is vital in a small enclosed area such as a narrowboat cabin.
The canal environment, mixing water and heavy moving equipment, is one where safe practices are essential and many boaters now see safety training courses as essential.


  • The Boat Safety Scheme requires fire fighting equipment. Boats need adequate ventilation and smoke, gas and CO2 detectors onboard. A few breaths of toxic smoke from a fire is all it takes to render a sleeping person unconscious. See our listing of BSS examiners and advisors.
  • Safety during cruising is important too, many boaters now wear lifejackets, as do all Canal and River Trust employees and volunteers. Even good swimmers should not assume that they could float if they fell in the water, on a number of occasions boaters have been knocked unconscious when they slipped from the boat or lockside. All children and poor swimmers should always wear lifejackets when unsupervised. You can even buy lifejackets for your dog and cat!
  • We have lots of useful advice about safe canal cruising. We also have a listing of Training providers. Many new and experienced boaters find a safety course or refresher useful and confidence building.
