Chimney Fire Safety Week

Chimney Fire Safety Week 2017HETAS Supports Chimney Fire Safety Week 2017

We are now less than a month away from Chimney Fire Safety Week 2017. Once again, HETAS will be supporting the Fire Kills campaign which works with industry and Fire and Rescue Services to promote this positive safety message to consumers. How will you be supporting the campaign?

In 2016 HETAS launched a campaign logo that is available for everyone to use during Chimney Fire Safety Week 2017. The team has developed a campaign pack that can be downloaded via the HETAS Technical Area. We will also be including statistics on chimney fires by county, so you can share chimney fire statistics in your area on your website or through your social media channels. We hope to have the information for April 2016 to March 2017 available from the Home Office before the campaign starts.

Statistics

In England, Wales and Scotland the overall trend since 2012/13 has been positive in recent years, with chimney fires on the decrease. The figures below demonstrate this trend. Figures run from April to March and are yet to be released for 2016/17. HETAS will make these available as soon as they are published by the respective Fire and Rescue Services.
