Don’t let this cold snap lead to a mishap! This photo shows what can happen when wood is stored too close to a combustion heater. Luckily the damage was contained by firefighters from @frnsw_411_oberon. Remember to always keep items one metre from the heater and for more winter fire safety tips visit www.fire.nsw.gov.au/winter 🔥☃️

Make certain your tires are properly inflated and have plenty of tread.
Do not use cruise control when driving on any slippery surface, such as on ice, black ice and snow.
Don’t stop if you can avoid it. There’s a big difference in the amount of inertia it takes to start moving from a full stop versus how much it takes to get moving while still rolling. If you can slow down enough to keep rolling until a traffic light changes, do it.
It's COLD OUTSIDE!
Just because they have a fur coat, doesn't mean they don't feel the cold! 😨
Bring your dog inside when it's wet and cold and ensure they have adequate shelter and warmth this winter!
Cape Town is well known for its heavy winter downpours and icy winds that bluster across our city. It’s important not to forget our pets feel the chill despite their furry coats. The best solution for winter's woes is to keep your dog or cat inside with you and your family when it’s cold outside. The happiest dogs are taken out for regular exercise but kept inside the rest of the time.
Here are a few tips for protecting your pets this winter:
1.Keep pets inside
Don't leave pets outdoors when the temperature drops. During walks, consider putting short-haired dogs into a doggie sweater. If you must keep your pet outdoors please provide your dog with a warm, dry, and draft free shelter outside.
In winter it takes more energy to stay warm when it's cold, and that’s why outdoor animals need to eat more during the winter. Fresh running water is always vital for maintaining your pet's health.Visit our SPCA Vet Shops for the best food and nutritional supplements https://capespca.co.za/vet-shop/
3.Never shave your dog
Shaving a dog’s coast down to the skin removes vital warmth and protection during the colder weather.
4.Ensure your pets tags are secure and updated with contact information in case they go missing. Call Lost and Found on 021 7004166 if you need assistance with missing animals.
5.Speak out if you see a pet left in the cold
If you see an animal left out in cold weather please gently ask the owners to take the animal inside. If the issue continues please contact your nearest SPCA with a time-stamped photo of the animal so they can address the situation. Please call 021 7001458/9 to report any animal in distress.
Is it Safe To clean your engine? Well that depends on your Engine.... As everything in life, not everything is created equal. Especially engines. If you’re cleaning a car that’s above 2003, you can assume that most of the wires are water sealed with only a few parts that you’ll need to cover up like the alternator, intake, battery, etc.
We use a 100% Steam, so the risk are by far lower then the traditional way of cleaning an engine bay.
The type of cars you need to be most concerned about (or at least the most cautious) are the vintage and older vehicle cars. Also pre 1990 cars. These cars might not have water-sealed wiring to keep them safe from water.
Another coil spring casualty! This was spotted by KYB’s Northern Director Andy while out cycling this weekend. A perfect reminder that coil springs weaken during cold winter weather, meaning cars across Europe could suffer the same issue when faced with a pothole or speed bump. Always check the coil springs of vehicles that come into the workshop, especially those that have driven over 50,000 miles / 80,000km. #potholes#speedbump#coilsprings#wintersafety

The things you will find under a car seat....we know all parents can relate.
~// W I N T E R C A R S E A T S A F E T Y \\~ Coming into winter, it's important that your children's clothing layers are safe to use in their car seat.
When putting babies and children in their harness, you shouldn't have to loosen it to get them in when they have a jacket on. If you do, the jacket needs to be removed before buckling.
In this image, the top 2 photos show appropriate use of car seats - the left one with the harness as tight as it should be, and the right one with a jacket over the top of the harness to keep warm.
The bottom 2 photos show INAPPROPRIATE use of car seats. The harness was buckled over the jacket in the left photo and pulled as tight as possible. The jacket was then removed, and the harness re-buckled. The right photo shows how much slack there is without the jacket on! If the jacket is on in a crash, the padding all compresses leaving the child with heaps of room under the harness, with the potential to be ejected from the seat.
Some Pet Tips from @cthumanesociety Keep bundled up like me!🙂❄🐾❄🐾🙂
Reposted from @cthumanesociety - Are you bundled up to the max this week? Make sure your pets are protected in this weather, too!
--Short-hair dogs shouldn't stay outside for walks and playtime as long as those with long, thick manes. --Wipe paws off when pets come inside--the salt they may have walked on can hurt their paw pads.
--Towel off their fur, too. Moisture and cold are not their friends right now.
--Consider a sweater (or maybe a hat!) to keep them toasty. #Brrrr#PetTips#WinterSafety#WinterStyle

Keeping Lexy safe and seen on our dark winter walks. It's frightening how easy it is to blend into the low light and the risks we take if not prepared. I'm so pleased with Lexy's new harness and leash from @squeakerdogs .. Waterproof and rechargeable. Lexy looks pretty proud too :) And.. this set is going a long way to keep us both safe and seen 😃! #squeakerdogs#wintersafety#beprepared#pitbullsofinstagram#safetyfirst
