Minimize Your Fire Risk

Simple Steps:

  • Ensure butane tanks are not kept in enclosed areas; have tanks inspected for leaks regularly
  • Homes or offices should have adequate fire fighting equipment
  • Handlers must be trained in handling fire extinguishers
  • Install sprinkler systems and smoke detectors
  • Don't overload power outlets and switch off appliances when not in use.
  • Always keep lighters and matches away from children.
  • If you live in a bushfire prone area keep the ground around your home clear of grass, leaves and other litter.  Create firebreaks if necessary around your property.
  • If you have a garage or shed remember to take extra care with any stored chemicals and fuels.
