How safe is your electric blanket?

How safe is your electric blanket?

Each October the District Councils work the Fire Service and Trading Standards to offer free electrical safety checks for older and vulnerable people who use electric blankets to keep warm during the colder months.

This year due to the Covid-19 restrictions in place, electric blankets will be collected from people's homes to be tested instead of people bringing their blankets to a venue to be tested.

Blankets will be tested and returned the same day during the weeks commencing 5th and 19th October.

Safety testing is free but people do need to request a test by calling 01865 895 999 or emailing
