Electrical Fire Safety Week

EDM number 1840 in 2017-19, proposed by Jim Fitzpatrick on 15/11/2018.
Categorised under the topics of Charities, Consumers, Elderly people, Fire services, Housing and Manufacturing industries.

That this House recognises the work of Electrical Safety First, the only UK charity dedicated to preventing deaths, injuries and damage caused by electricity; notes that 19 November 2018 is the start of Electrical Fire Safety Week, which is run in conjunction with the Home Office; further notes that the 2018 campaign, Safer Over 65 focuses on older people and loneliness; understands that electrical accidents in the home can pose a significant risk to older people, with around 12 fires a day affecting older people in the UK; encourages people to support the campaign by visiting their older family, friends and neighbours and carrying out simple visual checks on the electrics in their homes to help keep them safe from electrical accidents and fires; commends Electrical Safety First for highlighting this important issue; and calls on the Government to raise awareness of greater safety for people over 65 when they use electricity throughout the winter.

This motion has been signed by a total of 17 MPs.
