The latest campaign was delivered by NAPIT in conjunction with the Chief Fire Officers Association (CFOA), the professional voice of the UK fire and rescue service, to provide quality advice to the British public on how to avoid electrical fires in their homes.
NAPIT group chief executive, Michael Andrews, said: ‘We are extremely pleased that we are able to reach so many people to help raise awareness of electrical fire safety and promote the use of competent, registered installers. Our local newspaper promotion is one of the many ways NAPIT are investing in making sure awareness messages are seen by as many householders as possible.’
CFOA director of prevention, protection and road safety, Lewis Ramsay, said: ‘We worked with NAPIT on this campaign in order to help keep people safe in their homes by providing electrical safety advice. We support our members to fulfil their leadership role in protecting local communities and making people safer through improved service delivery, as well as raising general safety awareness.’
Articles carrying awareness messages will continue to appear in newspapers throughout the rest of the year as NAPIT work with various organisations to promote the use of registered, competent installers.
