Firefighters Message Board Helps Get The Message Across

One bit of advice which we keep hearing is to stay at least two metres away from each other. 

The last thing you want to be doing right now is to walk into someone else’s’ ‘cough cloud’. And if someone sneezes, then nobody will look down on you for running in the opposite direction. 

Our daily lives seem to have morphed into some sort of budget Hollywood film. Nobody is allowed out. People are walking around in full PPE, and wildlife is emerging from where they have been hiding from humanity. 

But how do you know how far two metres actually is? 

Well, some firefighters in New South Wales (Australia) have come up with a handy way of reminding you just how big a gap two metres is. 

On a sign outside of their fire station, Bellingen Fire & Rescue Service announced:

‘If you can smell their fart, You’re not far enough apart’. 

So there we have it. 

If you have ever been in a situation where your colleague has let rip, and you have had to walk away to avoid their methane cloud, then the distance at which you could no longer smell the offensive aroma is the same distance you need to be away from people. 

All of the time. For the foreseeable future.
