Chambers, E.D., 1967. THE STATISTICAL BACKGROUND TO THE EXETER CHIP PAN SAFETY CAMPAIGN. Fire Research Notes 679
Between October 1966 and January 1967, a leaf'let on the safe use of chip pans was distributed to every household in Exeter. (Further details are given in Appendix I). If the recipients act on the advice given, a reduction in the number of chip pan fires might be expected. Reports of fires attended within the city by the City of Exeter Fire Brigade have been examined, and a comparison made with fire statistics for the United Kingdom. It is hoped that it will thus be possible to observe whether the campaign is effective in reducing the number of fires.
