West Sussex Fire & Rescue Service is encouraging residents and businesses to check electrical appliances to highlight the risk of fires.
Throughout November the service is sharing safety messages and tips.
The reminder is also in the run up to Electrical Fire Safety Week, from 18-24 November.
- The service attended almost 500 electrical fires in people's home.
- 48% of these incidents involved cooking equipment including ovens, grills, toasters and microwaves.
- 26% of these call-outs were due to faulty wiring, with frayed or damaged leads and cables discovered by firefighters.
- 82 call-outs were to electrical fires at businesses around the county and 51% were caused by faulty wiring, cables and plugs.
Nicki Peddle, Head of Prevention at West Sussex Fire & Rescue Service said: "There are simple things people can do to check their electrical appliances are safe, such as regularly checking the cables for damage and checking for hot plugs and sockets that may be damaged."
The largest proportion of electrical fires WSFRS attends start in the kitchen.
Tips to prevent an electrical fire include:
- Unplug all appliances and chargers when you're not using them.
- Don't charge your phone overnight or for long periods of time unsupervised and don't leave them to charge under pillows or piles clothes.
- Don't use more than one extension lead per socket
- Don't overload sockets (use https://www.electricalsafetyfirst.org.uk/guidance/safety-around-the-home/overloading-sockets/ to check
- Use a charger from a reputable supplier.
- Make sure you have a working smoke alarm on every level of your home.
- Electrical equipment should never be thrown away in your bin as it contains hazardous substances. Unwanted appliances should be taken to your local Household Waste Recycling Site, which is a free and easy way to recycle these items.
Remember if there's a fire - get out, stay out and call 999. Never go back inside a burning building.

A real success story has happened at the Play Area at Croshaw Recreation Ground. A makeover has been completed thanks to a joint-funding partnership. Children can now twirl and whirl or spin and spring on the new roundabout, spinner bowl, scooter and sealion springers as well as test their skills crossing the wobbly bridge in the toddler multi-play. These new items have been introduced to complement the existing swings and remaining junior multi-play. The Play Area has also been upgraded to make play safer with all the safety surfacing having been replaced.

Refill Lancing went live on 8th October with its launch at Lancing Parish Hall with over 80 people attending for films, talks, presentations and information stalls. The event was hosted by the Chairman of Lancing Parish Council, Cllr Lydia Pope supported by Francesca Iliffe of A&W Councils, Joel Hufford of Southern Water, Mala Nathan of Refill South-East and Claire Potter of Surfers Against Sewage.
It was organised by Wendy Peters of the community group, Keep Lancing Lovely, together with Lancing Parish Council, supported by Adur District Council and West Sussex County Council. Among those attending were Cllr George Barton, Chairman of Adur District Council as well as West Sussex County Cllr Ann Bridges and several District and Parish Councillors.
Since Lancing embarked upon the Refill journey early this year, Wendy has signed up more than 25 local businesses and community organisations to the Refill Scheme's App, which sees them offer water stations to allow the public to top-up reusable containers on-the-go rather than buying single-use bottles.
Southern Water, Surfers Against Sewage, West Sussex County Council's Waste Team and Ouse and Adur Rivers Trust as well as local community groups World of Widewater, Sustainable Sussex, and Worthing Climate Action Network were among those in attendance at this event. These organisations had stalls and their attendance created a great atmosphere so greatly contributing to the success of the launch of Refill Lancing. Another great effort by a great community champion, Wendy Peters. Congratulations and well done, Wendy!
