TW: There is discussion of dying in a house fire in this episode so please be aware as this may be triggering.

This week Bec talks to South Australian Metropolitan Fire Service, Manager Community Engagement Vinny Schar about the relationship between clutter and fire risk or risk of death.

We also get some tips on how you can reduce your fire and fatality risks regardless of whether you have a lot or a bit of clutter or even none at all.

The Hoarding Fire Risk Scale (and other information) that Vinny is referring to at the beginning can be found here.
