Home Living : March 31st 2009
6 HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, March 31, 2009 Check those fire alarms HOMELIVING One in five Australians take down or remove the battery of their smoke alarm when it is accidentally triggered by cooking, according to research released in a Duracell National Fire Safety report. Of those who remove the smoke alarm or battery when accidentally triggered, nearly one third don't replace it immediately, while 7 per cent forget to replace the smoke alarm or battery altogether. In accordance with the end of daylight saving residents should change both their clocks and their smoke alarm batteries on Sunday, April 5. Smoke alarms provide a vital early warning sign should there be a fire in the home. However they are only able to do so if they are working. There were more than 13,000 residential fires in Australia in 2008 and Australian Fire Services want to see this figure significantly reduced in 2009. NSW Fire Brigades Commissioner Greg Mullins says the risks for household fires were higher in winter months. ''If you're asleep at the time of the fire, the smoke, which is full of toxic gases, may numb your senses and put you into a deeper sleep,'' he said. ''The high- pitched sound of a smoke alarm is designed to wake you and other family members before the smoke kills you. ''Working smoke alarms and a plan to escape are crucial in giving households an important early warning and safe escape from home fires this winter. ''These simple measures often make the difference between life and death in a fire situation.'' Details: Visit www.changeyourbattery.com.au Restoration of...
