Winter Fire Safety in your Home

Mike Shaw from New Zealand Fire Region 1

With winter fast approaching it's time to look at your fireplaces and chimneys

•Clean chimneys and flues before you light the first fire of the season.

•Always use a fireguard or spark-guard when using an open fire.

•Never throw rubbish into the fireplace – particularly batteries and aerosol cans.

•Always empty ashes and ashtrays into a metal bin and pour water over them before disposal. Remember that ashes can take up to 5 days to cool.

•Keep matches, lighters and anything else that can create fire out of reach of children.

Remember: Smoke alarms save lives
