< Back

A request for information on fires involving appliances and recalled appliances.

Ref: FOI/15106

RE: FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT 2000 REQUEST

I am writing to confirm that the West Midlands Fire Service has now completed its search for the information you requested on 18th August 2015

Please find below a summary of our findings.

Request

I’m looking for statistics on appliance fires for a new campaign,

  • From 2014-2015
  • Or past five years from 2010-2015
  • What types of appliances they were

Fires in Appliances

Request

On top of that, if you keep a list of those appliances, could you let us know if any were recalled, and had the owner known? It would really help us on an education campaign we’re doing to alert the public on the importance of registering appliances in case of recalls.

WMFS does not record information about recalled appliances and therefore does not hold information whether the owner was aware of the recall.

If you have any queries about this email, please contact me.  Please remember to quote the reference number above in any future communications. If you are unhappy with the service you have received in relation to your request and wish to make a complaint or request a review of our decision please write to The Public Relations Department, West Midlands Fire Service, 99 Vauxhall Road, Birmingham, B7 4HW.
