Fire NSW can conduct Safety Visits which assists people to reduce their risk of an accidental fire in the home and to safely escape in the event of a fire occurring.
During your Safety Visit, Fire NSW will attend your home and check that you have working smoke alarms, that they are in good working condition, and are installed in suitable areas. If you do not have one, firefighters will install a long-life battery-powered smoke alarm as well as replace existing smoke alarm batteries all at no cost.
With your permission, firefighters will also ask you to show them around your home and property. This will allow them to give you personalised fire safety information including, but not limited to:
- Cooking fire safety,
- Heaters and open fires,
- Common electrical safety,
- Barbecues and LPG cylinders, and
- Bedroom heating and wheat bags
Firefighters will also provide advice on a fire escape plan in the event of a fire occurring in your home and how to call Triple Zero (000) to report emergencies.
