Fire Safety In Your Home – Home electrical and heating appliances

Winter sees an increase in fires in the home, often due to the need for heating appliances.

When heating your home:

  • Only use appliances that meet approved Australian standards and have them installed by a qualified fitter.
  • Check your appliances once a year. Worn out electrical cords or plugs should be replaced immediately.
  • Always plug appliances directly into permanent power points and never overload them with double adaptors.
  • Never leave children unsupervised near heating appliances.
  • Make sure all items are at least a metre from the heater.

Keep safe this winter.
