Test your items at fire safety day

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

Ever won­dered if that old toaster, iron, ket­tle, hair-dryer or other sus­pect elec­tri­cal de­vice you have had for years is still safe to use?

Now is the time to find out, with Hor­sham Fire Bri­gade of­fer­ing a test­ing ser­vice as part of an Elec­tri­cal and Home Fire Safety Day on May 27.

Faulty prod­ucts can cause house fires and the bri­gade has in­vited peo­ple to bring along small elec­tri­cal items to the Sun­day event, be­tween 10am and 2pm at Hor­sham Fire Sta­tion, to have them ‘tested and tagged’ by a qual­i­fied elec­tri­cian. Gold coin do­na­tions will cover the tag­ging cost.

As part of the safety day, the bri­gade will also have demon­stra­tions on how to safely use a ex­tin­guisher.

Mem­bers have also planned a va­ri­ety of chil­dren’s ac­tiv­i­ties in­clud­ing fire­hose and ‘learn­ing to es­cape a house fire’ games and face-paint­ing.

There will also be a raf­fle for a fire ex­tin­guisher, fire blan­ket and smoke de­tec­tor. fire blan­ket and fire
