View our Fire prevention - Why Risk It? fact sheets, videos and posters below.
Please Note: Due to changes to the Fire and Emergency Services Act and Regulations, which become effective as of 1 March 2021, SAPOL has withdrawn the power tools and harvesting fact sheets and videos from our website.
You too can help SAPOL and other emergency services to make this season as safe as possible. If you undertake any activity which may be a fire risk, please consider the weather conditions and check the restrictions around that activity beforehand.
For further information about what you can and can’t do during the Fire Danger Season please visit the CFS website.
It is also important that you continue to report suspicious, reckless or negligent behaviour by calling SAPOL on 131 444. If you see a fire or there is an imminent risk of a fire, call Triple Zero (000). If you have any information about someone deliberately lighting fires call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or report online. You can remain anonymous.
These are some less obvious tips police recommend you consider to keep your home safe and secure.
You don't have to go to the extremes of wrapping up your home to make it secure, simply locking doors and windows is a great place to start.
