Wheat bag fire safety campaign
Wheat bags can help pain, but they also have the potential to cause burns and fire if improperly used. Fire and Rescue NSW Firefighters have responded to numerous residential fires that have occurred due to wheat bags overheating in the microwave oven or wheat bags being used to warm bedding materials. These campaign resources are for you to help spread the safety message.
Change your clock and check your smoke alarm campaign
2016 was the 10th anniversary of the introduction of smoke alarm legislation, which meant many alarms would have reached the end of their 10-year working lives. This year, the key message is that all households should check their smoke alarm at the end of daylight savings when they change their clocks.
