   21st March is Census Day.    26 February, 2021

Every 10 years a census of the population of England and Wales takes place. The data collected is used by national and local government, charities and other organisations to plan resources and services in health, education, transport and housing.

For the first time, we want as many people as possible to complete their census online and the reasons for this are that it is considerably cheaper, but also the data can be analysed more quickly, meaning decisions are made with much more up to date information.

However, online completion is not mandatory

   New Emergency Support Line For Vulnerable People    30 March, 2020

Today (Monday 30 March) Cumbria County Council and partners have launched a new emergency support service for people at high risk of becoming seriously ill, as a result of COVID-19, and who do not have support available from friends, family or neighbours.

Those at high risk include people over 70 years old, pregnant women and those with underlying health conditions who should be protecting themselves by staying at home. The majority of these people will already be receiving support from family, friends or local voluntary groups with tasks like shopping or collection of medicines if they require it. But we know that a small number of people will not have this support. If they have no alternative, these people will now be able to call the Freephone number to request help with getting food, medicines, essential supplies and home deliveries.

   Drivers Targeted With Fake Fines    3 July, 2019

Action Fraud have received an increase in reports and intelligence where elderly victims are being targeted by individuals purporting to be police officers or traffic wardens. The victims are being approached whilst parked in a car park and are told by the suspect that they have parked illegally or broken a speed limit and a photo has been taken of their car for ‘evidence’.

Victims are advised that they will face a substantial penalty fine unless they pay a smaller upfront fee immediately. Victims, who opt for paying the smaller penalty, will be directed to a parking meter and asked to enter their card and PIN. These parking meters have been tampered with by the suspect in order to retain the card.

Once the victim inserts their card and are asked for their PIN, the victims are shoulder surfed for their PIN by the suspect. Once victims input their PIN, the card is retained by the machine and victims are told by the suspect to seek help from the company who operates the parking meter or their bank.

   Cumbria Fire & Rescue: Register my appliance Day    16 January, 2018

People are reminded to improve their home safety by taking the simple step of registering their fridges, freezers and washing machines on the new streamlined version of www.registermyappliance.org.uk.

Developed by the Association of Manufacturers of Domestic Appliances (AMDEA), the portal now optimised for smartphone makes registration of over 60 leading brands of old and new appliances faster and easier via mobile, tablet or PC. 

As part of the national fire safety campaign, Cumbria Fire & Rescue Services, is keen to ensure that every UK household is encouraged to take this very simple step, and made aware of how it can help to protect their homes and families.

Many brands are running prize draws to encourage owners to look around their kitchens and register their older appliances too.  Every registration increases the chances of winning a luxury prize and ensures the traceability of these products. Most makes accept registration of large appliances up to 12 years old.

For manufacturers and fire and rescue services increasing home safety has never been more important.  With an estimated 93 million (92.7m.) wet and cold appliances  currently in use in our homes, keeping track of our fridges, freezers and washing machines is a crucial safety precaution. By taking just a few minutes to register domestic appliances directly with the manufacturer, via the user-friendly portal www.registermyappliance.org.uk, householders can be contacted quickly if a recall or free safety repair is ever needed.
