Chief Fire Officer Simon Smith

Welcome from the Chief Fire Officer

Are you switched on to Electrical safety?

This month we’re highlighting electrical safety - electrical fires are one of the biggest causes of accidental house fires in the country.

Electrical fires can happen to anyone, anywhere so our advice is to get prepared and stay safe by having a working smoke alarm fitted on every floor in your home, and ensure it is tested regularly.

Smoke alarms are the best way to give an early warning of fire in your home, giving you and your family to chance to escape safely.

Registering appliances

We recently supported Register My Appliance’s campaign during Product Safety Week, which highlighted the importance of registering electrical appliances

Please make the time to ensure your electrical items are registered, so manufacturers can contact you in the event of any problems. As well as new appliances, you can also register appliances that are up to 12 years old.

Go to for more information and to register your electrical products.
