The franchise recently shared a blog post on its website diving into the risk of an electrical fire, and the ways in which risk can be reduced and safety can be ensured.

According to Jackson Fire and Security, “Faulty electrical appliances were calculated to have caused an average of 43 fires a week in England alone in figures released earlier on this year. It’s vital that everyone is aware of the dangers – and the need for them to take simple steps to reduce those risks.” In this blog post, the security franchise outlined risk reduction measures that could be taken, including:

  • Regular visual checks to “look for any signs of damaged cables, plugs or sockets”
  • Avoidance of socket overload
  • “Ensuring good ventilation”
  • “Cleaning to avoid dust-build up”
  • Storing “combustible materials” safely and not “too close to electrical appliances”
  • Avoiding plugging “high-powered appliances” into single sockets
  • Never leaving “white goods like washing machines or dishwashers” running overnight
  • Never leaving “items such as mobile phones” charging overnight
  • Never using a “hot water bottle at the same time as an electric blanket”
  • “Always unplugging electric blankets before going to sleep”
  • Never buying cheap, unbranded electrical items online
  • Regular electrical inspections and PAT tests (these are especially essential)

Plus, Jackson Fire and Security said that, “In all settings it is of course also essential to have appropriate fire detection and firefighting equipment in place – including the correct type of fire extinguisher for dealing with electrical fires – along with a robust plan for safe evacuation.”
