    April food for thought

     

    What’s your excuse?

    So you’ve decided to cut some corners, save some money, save some time, avoid doing the paperwork, forget the training you’ve had, or just can’t be bothered?

    Don’t get me wrong, we have all thought about it, the difference is those who take the time to do it right only do the job once and go home safely, each and every time!

    Sure, it may seem easier to take the quick, unsafe option but next time you consider it, stop and ask yourself, ‘What is my life really worth?’

    Still not sure if your doing it right? Why not call us now and discuss the job? Maybe you need training, or maybe just advice, we are here to help (where we can).

    Spring Time

    Spring is finally upon us and if you are anything like the staff at Australasian Fire & Safety you will be looking forward to the warmer weather!

    For many of us the brighter, sunnier days put us in the right frame of mind for a bit of spring cleaning. If that is the case now is a good time to tidy up your outside areas as well as inside the house, making it ready for get-togethers around the ‘barbie’.

    Australian summers can be harsh & it is a good time to start planning & preparing for ‘bush fire’ season.

    Consider clearing the gutters, cleaning the chimneys & flues, tidying up that wood pile left over from winter, checking your smoke detectors & installing a hard wired smoke alarm if you haven’t already done so. And don’t forget to have your fire extinguishgers & fire blankets in a conveniant location J

    Happy Cleaning  😉

    Effectively Making a Fire Evacuation Plan

    Irrespective of where you are working and living, it is certainly necessary to have a fire evacuation plan should you ever find yourself confronted with such an emergency. Contrary to what most people assume, making an evacuation plan consists of more than just frantically running for the nearest exit.  As a matter of fact, this can be very dangerous and make the predicament even worse. In any case, coming up with your own fire evacuation plans is really quite simple if you comply with a few steps.
