MB HLF - HOME LIVING: NORTH WEST, Tuesday, July 3, 2012 5 MANAGE FIRE RISKS SAFETY TIPS FOR WINTER HAZARDS AVOID ELECTRICAL DANGERS Remove all extension leads if possible. Get rid of double adaptors and reduce use of power boards. Install safety switches on power and light circuits. Ensure down-lights are properly installed and not compromised by insulation. Regularly replace smoke detector batteries. WARNING WINTER is the most dangerous time of the year for home fires. And most disasters start from the very things that keep us cosy and comfortable -- like electric blankets, heaters, candles, dryers and unattended cooking. Each winter, Fire and Rescue NSW deals with house fires caused by uncleaned chimneys and faulty gas and electrical appliances. Once again, homeowners have been urged to do their basic check-ups, starting from regular maintenance on cen- tral heating units, including ducting. Correctly installing smoke alarms in effective locations and testing them regu- larly is a vital safety step. The building design, inspection and ad- vice service of the Australian Institute of Architects, Archicentre, says all winter heating units need to be regularly serviced by reputable professionals. Property inspections show that many households have common electrical prob- lems, including defective wiring, unearthed power points and switchboards without residual current devices (safety switches) installed. NSW Fair Trading Commissioner Rod Stowe said all homeowners should pay attention when buying and using household heating appliances, electric blankets and hot water bottles. ''Gas and electrical appliances and prod- ucts can pose a significant risk to life and property if used in dangerous settings or ways," he said. - Built in Wardrobes - Shower Screens - Vanity Mirrors - Glass Splashbacks 4647 2344 30 Bluett Drive, Smeaton Grange, NSW 2567 www.stylishwardrobes.com.au Fax: (02) 4647 2355 ABN: 93 120 738 383 Business Est. for more than 22 Yrs ON SALE NOW Call Judy 24/7: 0412 224 698 www.weedoo.com.au firstname.lastname@example.org • 25 years experience • Call for your free consultation WEEDOO BLINDS,SHUTTERS CURTAINS PLANTATION SHUTTERS from $290sq.m 2178063 12/6 WEEDOO BLINDS, SHUTTERS CURTAINS Unit 17, 28 Vore St, Silverwater Tel: 9648 0000 Mob: 0430 134 499 Fax: 9648 1766 email@example.com 2127314 23/8 • Polyurethane & Vacuum Form Doors • Caesar Stone Benchtop • Free Quote & Design • Builders & bulk purchase welcome OPEN 7 DAYS Kitchen Direct Australia CELEBRATING THE YEAR OF THE DRAGON XINJIA TIMBER FLOORS • Solid Timber Floors from $50sq m + installation • Engineered Timber Floors from$58sq m* • Laminated Timber Floors from $33sq m* • Bamboo Timber Floors from $55sq m* *including underlay skirting & installation 19 Railway Parade, EASTWOOD Ph:9804 1024 Ah:0424 063 228 2069030 29/05 We offer a range of Gable and Flat Awnings and Carports, Conservatories and Sunrooms, designed to suit your needs and your budget.
