When you start forgetting certain tasks around the house, you may be jeopardising your families safety.
Fire safety is important, and we're here to help make it a priority in your family home this winter.
Close call with a house fire because you accidentally left the stove on?
Research undertaken by Victoria's Metropolitan Fire Brigade (MFB) showed that the four most common causes of house fires in 2015 were unattended cooking, unattended heating, smoking, and faulty appliances.
Winter is coming, the wood fires are starting, and the electric blankets are being brought out. According to Fire and Rescue NSW, 43% of all fire fatalities happen in winter.
That's some seriously scary statistics. MFB and Fire and Rescue NSW figures show that 45% of house fires start in the kitchen, 9% start in the bedroom, 5% start in the lounge room and 4% start in the laundry.
What are the safety measures in your household?
You can start by giving Detector Inspector a call.

Did you know that in just 60 seconds a house fire can escalate to the point where it's already producing toxic smoke?
Within three minutes, a house fire can reach over 800 degrees Celsius, which can easily spread, burning everything around you.
