Each year, #ElectricalSafety First works with the Home Office to promote electrical fire safety in the home. Electrical Fire Safety Week runs from 18th to 25th November this year.
Over half of all accidental house fires are caused by electricity. And nine out of ten electrical fires are caused by electrical products.
During Electrical Fire Safety Week, Electrical Safety First work closely with Fire & Rescue Services across the UK to raise awareness of electrical fire risks and the simple steps that people can take to avoid a devastating fire in their homes.
Electrical Safety First campaigns offer general safety messages as well as focusing on areas in the home and specific types of product that offer a particular risk.
