Fire Safety

KEEP YOUR COMMUNITY

FIRE-FREE

Fires are a tragic occurrence that can have life-changing effects on many aspects of your family members’ lives. House fires can be highly dangerous or even deadly, so it's important for everyone in your family to be aware of proper fire prevention and safety.

 

The major causes of fire, as well as unwanted/false alarms, are set out below. Please take extra care to avoid these activities so you can minimise the risks and keep your family and community safe.

 

CARELESS SMOKING

Smoking and dropping cigarette butts over balconies or in the common areas can cause a fire.

 

BBQ ON BALCONIES

Operating a BBQ on your balcony is against the Community Bylaws and can cause a fire.

 

FIRE-HAZARDOUS ITEMS

Identify and remove fire hazards in your home. There should be at least a 1m distance between heating items and any flammable substances.

 

STORING ITEMS ON BALCONIES

Avoid storing cardboard cartons, plastic boxes, garbage bags, or combustible items that could fuel a fire.

 

BAKHOOR/INCENSE STICKS

Burning of bakhoor or incense sticks is one of the main reasons for setting off unwanted smoke alarms in your home and, if left unattended, could start a fire.

 

SMOKE DETECTORS

Ensure smoke detectors are working and maintained regularly – do not block or cover the detectors.

 

UNATTENDED COOKING

Pay close attention when cooking and remember to turn off the cooker/oven when you leave home.

 

ELECTRICAL MODIFICATIONS & DEVICES

Do not overload plug sockets with too many devices, and ensure that electrical equipment is safe to operate.
