With cooler weather gripping the region, we're being reminded to get ready for winter kicking off in June. Many will be firing up electric blankets, and making use of portable heaters to stay warm, and experts are encouraging us to undertake safety checks on equipment and appliances.
The checks include testing your smoke alarms are working & checking for damaged power leads on heaters, powerboards and other electrical appliances. We're also reminder to keep fabrics at least one metre away from any heater being used to warm our homes, or dry our clothes.
