Don't become a statistic. Knowing what to do in a fire and how to keep your home fire safe could save your life.
A fire in your home can be devastating, even fatal. Once a fire starts it can spread rapidly, putting you and your loved ones at risk. While the dangers of fire are very real, there is a lot you can do to protect yourself, your family and your home.

The Tasmania Fire Service is committed to keeping communities safe by sharing home fire safety strategies and information with Tasmanians.
