An essential in just about every business and home, a fire blanket is of a piece of non-flammable fabric (usually woven glass fibre) that can be used to smother a small fire or wrap around a person whose clothing is alight. To be useful, a fire blanket should be easily and quickly accessible. Firewatch SA have a range of different size fire blankets available to suit your home, farm, business or specific industry.
A smoke alarm can be the first warning of a fire in your home. In fact, if you’re asleep, a working smoke alarm can save lives by alerting you and your family to quickly leave the premises if there’s a fire.
All homes in South Australia must now be fitted with a working smoke alarm with homeowners and residential landlords responsible for ensuring a working smoke alarm is installed in the dwelling.
At Firewatch SA, we stock both 10-year lithium battery smoke alarms and hard-wired smoke alarms. Our on-site technician is available for testing and, if required, replacing old units.
The life of a smoke detector powered by a nine-volt battery is 10 years and you should change the batteries at least once a year (usually when you adjust your clock for daylight saving).
