#SkyLanterns "...damage has always been extensive..."
Apr 15, 2020 —
Wow!! 2,000 signatures. Thank you all who have taken the time and trouble to sign and share this crucial petition.
Whilst #skylantern and #balloonreleases are banned by a lot of councils on their land, there is not a UK wide ban in place. This now needs to be done. No one wants to lose their home to a fire, especially when it is caused by a sky lantern.
Tonight I was emailed by a Paul Karcheski. He is a Loss Adjuster and he has seen the bad side of sky lantern releases. This is what he told me.
"I have served both as a Loss Adjuster and now a Chartered Surveyor. In both professions I have attended fire damaged buildings due to the lit lanterns when they land before burning up.
The damage has always been extensive and has been fortunate not to have caused a loss of life. It did however cause huge loss of personal and irreplaceable property and the loss of the home for considerable periods whilst repairs are carried out."
