Electrical fire risk – shocking age related statistics published

With winter approaching and an increase in the use of portable electric heaters, it is easy to see how it happens. Phil Buckle, director general of Electrical Safety First is quoted: ‘Half of all accidental fires are caused by misuse, so they are preventable. As a result, the charity is spearheading a campaign with fire brigades nationwide to get loved ones and neighbours to help older people stay safe.’
