It's cold out there, Canberra!
The Bureau of Meteorology is predicting below average temperatures for the weekend, into late next week.
ACT Fire & Rescue encourage the community to #BeFireSafe, especially when using heaters for an extended period of time, to reduce the risk of a fire starting.
Simple steps you can take to Be Fire Safe include;
- Keeping clothes clear of heaters
- Keeping excess bedding off electric blankets and make sure it's turned off when not being used
- Keeping watch on common causes of fire including open flames, and
- Always switching off sources of heating when sleeping or leaving the house.
