Fire and rescue Safety Visits... Might be handy for some, or their parents.


What is a Safety Visit?

During your Safety Visit, we will attend your home and check that you have working? smoke alarms, that they are in good working condition, and are installed in suitable areas. If you do not have one, firefighters will install a long-life battery-powered smoke alarm as well as replace existing smoke alarm batteries all at no cost. With your permission, firefighters will also ask you to show us around your home and property. This will allow us to give you personalised fire safety information including, but not limited to;

    cooking fire safety
    heaters and open fires
    common electrical safety
    barbecues and LPG cylinders
    bedroom heating and wheat bags

Firefighters will also provide advice on a fire escape plan in the event of a fire occurring in your home and how to call Triple Zero (000) to report emergencies.

Firefighters checking a smoke alarm during a safety visit.
Who might benefit from a Safety Visit?

Everyone can benefit from a Safety Visit, however there are people within our communities that are statistically at higher risk of incidents occurring, including:

    Over 65’s.
    Those who live alone.
    People with limited mobility, hearing impairments or vision impairments.
    Residents who are supported by carers, family and friends.
    And anyone with English as a second language.

This service is not available to landlords in untenanted premises, for landlords responsibilities please refer to Division 7A of Part 9 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 [external link] for more information.

Went to the local BGS this afternoon to pick up a right angle cordless drill. Couldn’t find any under the bench, so grabbed the display and approached a sales person. She asked if I wanted one of those, I said yes, she said OK, you can have that one for $60 as it is the only one left. Be aware, it doesn’t have a box or the usual driver bit, fine by me thanks :cheers:

Walked in to BCF and asked where the quick gas connects were.  He shows me to the display and picks one off the hook.  I said, that's the one, but $9 doesn't seem right.

He looks at the label, reads it and says yep, they're about 30, but that's what it's priced at.  So that's what I have to sell it at.

I'll take 2 thanks  :cup:

A decent discount on Kickass brand shower tent at the moment $149   (down from $279)

Less of a discount on their hot water systems,  but still some.   Bundle with tent and hot water system for $299 is pretty good value  (down from $479)

Sounds like they're taking a page out of the Kings/4wdsupacentre book of marketing.    Those guys take annoying emails to another level.

Left the cord home to recharge my electric razor. Staying at eldest son’s in Perth So go to the shaver shop at cockburn to see if they have one, had mine for several years now. They go out the back & have a look, damn if they don’t come back with one. How much I ask, you can have it they say & save around $30. Well thank you very much. That’s a bargain I never expected.

My old man used to sell them when they first came on the market '68 or '69. It's a Murrumba Star - Mini Star. There was a slide on version too, called a Linda Star. Quite a neat little van really, all fibreglass construction, but can't really remember what the running gear and chassis was like.

Check how much in 1968 on this advert.

I was looking at buying one near here, and doing it up, but it sold as soon as it was put out the front of the owners yard.
4.2L TD Toyota Troopy, (Clarke's Country Camper Trailer, softfloor.) sold it and bought a Avan Ray small poptop caravan. I miss being able to acces the little tracks off into the scrub.

I wanted to get this one I saw to use for dragging it up the beach, behind the old 4Runner I used to have. When the old man was selling them, my brother and I were still in high school, and used to get the job of demoing them, and taking names and phone numbers of prospective buyers, at the local shows around the Ipswich area. The old man would be down the beer tent LOL.
