There are over 3,000 preventable house fires in Victoria each year. Most of these house fires are caused by someone making a mistake – a moment of carelessness, forgetfulness or neglect.
The Safe Mistake Zone Campaign is an innovative and engaging initiative that encourages the community to think about the small mistakes that lead to house fires, and to make a safe mistake instead.
From Tuesday 24 May, you can visit the new Safe Mistake Zone website (http://www.safemistakezone.com.au/) to play our fun and interactive safe mistake game, and share your score with your friends and networks! You will also be able to find out how many house fires were in your local area last year, and download useful home fire safety resources.
Remember: small mistakes can cause fires, so don’t run the risk.
