A fire in the air at Hope Valley nursing home
MFS said the air-conditioning unit should serve as a warning for the cooler in the South Australian summer.
Around eleven o'clock P. M. last night, eight metropolitan fire trucks and 37 firefighters evacuated the residents of the nursing home and put out the fire on the roof.
Investigators found that the fire may have been caused by the failure of the evaporation cooler.
A mfs spokesperson said it was time to check whether air conditioning, fans and portable coolers were safe.
"If, in the event of a heat wave, electrical cooling equipment is not properly maintained and is used continuously for a long time, there is a risk that the equipment will overheat and cause a fire," the spokesman said . ".
Ensure: * electrical cooling equipment such as air conditioners and evaporation coolers are installed by qualified merchants according to the manufacturer's instructions.
* All electrical cooling equipment, whether permanently installed systems or portable, shall be serviced regularly by certified merchants in accordance with the manufacturer's specifications.
* Arrange to repair your equipment in order to make full use of it at the beginning of the hot weather.
* Don't leave your air cooling equipment unattended while not at home.
* Consider replacing the old air conditioner with a unit that adjusts the thermostat.
* Keep portable electrical cooling equipment away from wet areas to avoid the possibility of electric shock.
* Children must be supervised when using cooling equipment.
Keep an eye on children and pets, especially the equipment you carry with you.
