Remember remember the 5th of November, one of the many celebrated dates amongst British public – marked by fires, fireworks, food and festivities.
Here in Lancaster, the date is marked by businesses, pubs, and general home owners hosting their very own Bonfire & Firework parties – all good fun indeed, but fire and explosions don’t always mean fun, it can of course end in disaster.
You wouldn’t experiment with your own electrics when you are not qualified to do so, so the same goes when you are experimenting with fire itself. This Bonfire night make sure you stay safe. Have a read of the do’s and dont’s of fire safety – there are some great guides and advice online – such as this one here.
Staying safe with fire should not just be on 5th November, but through the rest of the year too. Ensuring your electrics are safe is the first step in reducing potential fire risks in the home or business premises. This can easily be achieved by asking for a qualified electrician to carry out a full electrical installation condition report (EICR). On average this will cost around £150, which I think you will agree, is good value for money when you and your family’s safety is concerned.
There are many more preventative electrical safety measures you can put in place, feel free to get in touch with any enquiries.
