Safety Tip – Be safe.

Caravans and sleep-outs are great fun, but they also carry a much greater risk of fire than a traditional home.

These tips will help keep you safe:

• Every caravan should be fitted with a long-life photoelectric smoke alarm.

• Never leave children alone in your caravan. Keep matches and lighters out of their reach.

• Have a fire extinguisher or fire blanket near the exit and make sure you know how to use it.

Lighting and heating

• Use proper lighting units or torches. Don't use candles as they may start a fire.

Appliances and gas cylinders

• Check electrical appliances for frayed cords and other damage. Caravans should also have a current Electrical Warrant of Fitness.

• Caravans and sleep-outs often use gas cylinders to fuel cooking. Make sure you read our tips on using gas cylinders safely to reduce your risk of fire.

Smoke alarms

Caravans and sleep-outs are often small, so it might be necessary to install a smoke alarm near a cooking area. To avoid false alarms, use the silence feature to put the smoke alarm into a 'hold' status when you're cooking.

Press the button before you start cooking to silence the alarm for a pre-set period of time, between 8 and 15 minutes depending on the brand.

Safety Tip – Be safe.

Follow these tips to help protect your rural property from fire:

Escape plan

Design an escape plan for you and your family to get out of the house and off the property. Test it regularly.

Access

Make sure your driveway clearance is at least four metres wide and four meters high. Ensure there is adequate turning space for fire trucks and easy access to water.

Signs

Make it easy for emergency services to find you by making sure your RAPID rural property identification number is on your signpost and clearly visible from the road.

Water source

Ensure there is access to an adequate supply of water for fire trucks. Make sure your garden hose is connected and is long enough to reach around the house.

Firewood

Store your firewood and other flammable material away from the house.
