4 HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, June 7, 2011 Take heed of heater warnings » ADVERTISING FEATURE HOMELIVING The Department of Fair Trading has urged people to take heed of warnings on electrical products and children's clothing in the wake of recent house fires. Minister Anthony Roberts said Fire and Rescue NSW attended four heater- related fires last week alone. ''In one case a house was extensively damaged at North Ryde and bedrooms were damaged at properties in Waratah and Seven Hills,'' he said. ''Blankets, a mattress and pillows were too close to heaters in those incidents,'' he said. Essential safety tips for heaters are: Do not place the heater too close to furniture. The heat produced by the heater could ignite the furniture. Do not place clothing or other items too close to the heater. Some material burns very easily and could start a fire. Do not allow children or pets to play, stand or sit too close to the heater. Mr Roberts said modern heaters were manufactured to the latest standards, made from modern material and incorporated additional safety features that older style heaters may not. ''Older style heaters with rusted reflectors or frames can cause hot spots and may be a source of danger,'' he said. ''People should check all heaters for the appropriate approval marks.'' Mr Roberts also reminded parents to be mindful of the fire risks associated with children's clothing, especially nightwear. ''All children's nightwear sold in NSW must carry labels based on the fire risks associated with the product to help parents reach the right purchasing decision,'' he said. Essential safety tips for parents: Read labels very carefully and avoid garments that says,' 'warning: high fire danger'' or'' keep away from fire'', buy nightwear labelled: low fire danger; Avoid loose nightwear that could easily catch alight near a fireplace or a radiant heater Choose form-fitting pyjamas with cuffs around arms and legs When making your children's nightwear, look for safety warnings on commercial patterns and avoid using lightweight material or fabric with a pile or a nap, and Never let children get too close to fires or radiators.
