Change Your Clock, Change Your Smoke Alarm Battery
As part of this year's campaign the Point Cook Fire Brigade will be doing a sausage sizzle at Masters Home Improvement in Williams Landing on 4th April 2015. Come and grab a sausage and have a chat to us about fire safety in the home.
The CFA responded to 1652 residential fires in 2014 resulting in an estimated $50 million in damages and tragically 16 deaths. The most common causes were electrical, unattended cooking and heating related fires.
Only working smoke detectors save lives.
Do you know what the Fire Danger Ratings mean? How often do you check the Fire Danger Ratings for the days ahead? It doesn’t take long, but could mean the difference between staying safe and tragedy.
It’s important to remember that a Fire Danger Rating predicts how dangerous a fire will be, not the weather.
There are lots of fun games and activities on the Kids & Schools section of the CFA website and lots of information to help you complete your school projects.
Check out this great interactive website that makes it fun to learn about bushfire safety.
And don't forget to tell your teacher about the Fire Safe Kids program where your local firefighters come to your school to talk about fire safety.
