Canberra Be Fire Safe this weekend

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.
