Cheshire Fire Service aim to improve appliance safety

By on January 16, 2018

As part of today’s Register My Appliance Day, Cheshire Fire Service are encouraging residents to take a few minutes to register their household appliances.

This ensures that in the event of a repair being needed, residents can be contacted swiftly as according to YouGov less than half of all British adults register their large domestic appliances with the manufacturer.

Many of the appliance brands on are offering to enter registrants into free draws for a range of desirable prizes.

Head of prevention at Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service Nick Evans urges the public to register any recent purchases and not to forget about their older appliances. He said: “Remembering to register household appliances is a vital part of keeping one’s home and family safe.

“These products are the workhorses of the home, often running daily and for many years, but it is all too easy to forget about them.

“The Register My Appliance portal is quick and easy to use and, getting into the habit of spending a few minutes guarantees the household will receive any relevant safety messages from the manufacturer and they should respond immediately.

“This simple admin task should become second nature to anyone who is serious about home safety.”
