A recent post by the Fire Safety Research Institute on LinkedIn raised a safety point concerning lithium batteries, especially in the run-up to Christmas. Here at FASS we feel this is incredibly important to share, please take a moment to read:
With the approaching holiday shopping season, many consumers will be purchasing lithium-ion battery-powered devices without an understanding of potential fire risks. This is a critical time to ensure members of the public know safety tips and precautions to project their loved ones. We are calling on the fire service and other community influencers to watch and share our new PSA to educate the public on ways to Take C.H.A.R.G.E. of Battery Safety.
