Staffordshire Fire & Rescue Service - Preventing, Protecting, Responding

Electronic Cigarettes

Reference No: 048/2014
Request Date: 18/04/2014


This is an application for information under the Freedom of
Information Act 2000.

I would like to know the following:

1) Please list the emergency 999 call-outs the service has attended where the use of e-cigarettes (electric cigarettes) have been determined to be the cause or likely cause of the fire (for instance when the USB function have been left on charge in a laptop or electric device)

2) Please list a description of the fire (i.e. small fire in living room etc.)

3) Please list the dates, times and locations of the fire

4) I am looking for figures from September 1st 2013 to April 17th 2014


With regards to the request we unfortunately cannot provide the data as requested. Electronic Cigarettes have only recently been officially recorded as per OPS Flash 308 on 2nd April 2014. Unfortunately before this they were not recorded anywhere.
