Skin Cream

Request

  1. Between November 2 2016 and October 30 2017 how many fire deaths has your fire service recorded where emollient/paraffin-based cream was listed as a factor? 
    Please could you provide details of each incident, including the date it happened, the age of the victim and a brief description of the circumstances. 
    For example if the victim was in a bed and lit a cigarette which caused emollient skin cream to catch fire, please state that.
  2. Between November 2 and October 30 2017 how many fire incidents were you called to in which a person was injured but did not die, where emollient/paraffin-based cream was listed as a factor. 
    Again could you please provide details.
  3. Could you please state whether your incident reporting system contains a category specifically for reporting the presence of emollient/paraffin creams?
