Electrical Safety Roundtable supports Electrical Fire Safety Campaign


30/11/2020


The Electrical Safety Roundtable (ESR) are delighted to be supporting Norfolk Fire & Rescue Service, Norfolk County Council and NAPIT with their Electrical Fire Safety Campaign. The campaign will run from the 30th November – 6th December and will follow on from National Electrical Fire Safety Week. The campaign is seeking to raise awareness around the dangers of electrical fires in homes and to educate people about how to spot the early signs of danger to prevent accidents happening.

The campaign will share facts and statistics across social media over the week, raising awareness of the most common causes of electrical fires.

The title L.I.V.E which carries the campaign has a double meaning to signify life and live electrical current:

L – Look, listen, smell

I – Investigate and isolate

V – Visit www.electricalcompetentperson.co.uk to find an approved electrician

E - Emergency, is your house on fire call 999?

Chairman of the Electrical Safety in the Home, Chris Bielby comments: “The Electrical Safety Roundtable are thrilled to be supporting the LIVE campaign as part of electrical fire safety week. Worrying statistics show that just under half of house fires in England over the last five years have been caused by an electrical fault. Electrical fires can have a devastating impact, but many can be avoided and we want to help equip people with the vital knowledge to keep them safe.”
