Ban these heaters today

Be careful with these - let's check on our people, especially our kaumatua.

"Four deaths in the past eight years involving elderly people using lpg cabinet heaters highlighted how unsafe the devices were, coroner David Crerar said in Alexandra yesterday."

"Consumer magazine had an article this month titled "Time to ban unflued lpg heaters?", which he read out in court.
"We think these heaters should be banned," the article said.
"These heaters have an exposed flame. That means if anything gets too close - furniture, toys, children's nightwear - a fire can quickly start.""

If you know someone with one of these - help them get rid of it.
