Don’t die this winter

By johnboy - 26 May 2009 47

Simon Corbbell, the NRMA, and the fire brigade are running a winter home fire safety campaign here’s the skinny:

    — Install smoke alarms and regularly check they are working;
    — Never ever leave cooking unattended;
    — Everyone knows how to safely exit your home if there is a fire;
    — Keep curtains, tablecloths and bedding away from portable heaters;
    — Keep wet clothing at least 1 metre from heaters or fireplaces and never leave unattended;
    — Clean the lint filter every time before you use a clothes dryer;
    — Check electric blankets for damage or frayed cords and never leave them on when no one is home;
    — Only use one appliance per power point and switch off when not in use; and
    — Keep candles away from flammable materials and always extinguish them before going to bed.

All fine except the second last. Like hell.

If you smell a gas leak, refrain from smoking, and be good to your mum. Don’t die this winter.

And definitely never, ever put a hungry hyena down your pants.

Don’t put hot dogs in fax machine, even the big brother kind.

Wait 30 minutes after eating before swimming.

And wash your hands. And throw away used tissues.

Love it postal!

As a footnote…

Don’t ever use fire to fight zombies! If there is anything worse then a plague of the undead, it’s a flaming plague of undead.

Always decapitate zombies, but please don’t burn their bodies in slow-combustion stoves as this generates a lot of smokey air pollution in the valley.

Next thing you know they will be telling us not to accept candy from strangers and not to stick your fingers in power sockets…. I mean relaly what is the world coming to… luckly these rules only apply to winter…. (lol)

Common sense is the rarest one of all, Kods.

Kods 1:58 pm 26 May 09

Is it just me or is this all just a little bit common sense?

Thanks. A reminder doesn’t go astray.
