Winter is the time when we see an increase in residential house fire-related facilities.

Some simple steps you can take to make your home safer this winter include:

  • Never leave cooking unattended;
  • Only working smoke alarms save lives so test your smoke alarm today;
  • Do not keep anything within one metre of your heater and set up durable fire screens in front of open fires;
  • Do not use outdoor heating and cooking equipment inside your home; and,
  • Do not overload power boards with appliances.

If we all do our bit to minimise the risks in our homes, we can all stay safer together.
