Free Electric Blanket Testing – Open to Everyone

Free Electric Blanket Tests are Open to All!

Don’t Miss Out! Book Now!

Autumn has arrived and Warwickshire residents are being urged to book their free electric blanket test now. Bookings are now open to all residents irrespective of age (previously aged 50+).

Warwickshire County Council Trading Standards is launching its annual electric blanket safety testing campaign. Have your electric blanket safety tested FREE of charge this coming October.

In 2016, one in every three of the electric blankets tested failed and faulty electric blankets are a known cause of house fires.

The service is also offering to safety test kettles, irons, toasters and Christmas lights (again, free of charge) at the same time.

Free electric blanket safety checks will take place at venues across all five districts and boroughs this coming October. Safety tests will be carried out by an expert electrical examiner.

Monday 2nd October: Rugby Library
Tuesday 3rd October: Nuneaton Fire Station
Wednesday 4th October: Leamington Town Hall
Thursday 5th October: Atherstone Library (9 am to 12pm) and Coleshill Library (1 pm to 4 pm)
Friday 6th October: Briars Croft Stratford upon Avon

This service is now open to all Warwickshire residents.

Book today by calling the Trading Standards Service on 01926 414080 (office hours) or email: ebtesting@warwickshire.gov.uk

Appointments are allocated on a first come first served basis and are limited.

Don?t miss out ? book now!

Warwickshire County Councillor Howard Roberts, Portfolio Holder for Community Safety said:
?Faulty electric blankets are a serious fire hazard. I would strongly urge Warwickshire residents to take advantage of this free offer and book an appointment now.?

Act on Energy will also be at the testing stations to provide free energy efficiency advice to the public. Act on Energy is a charity that encourages energy conservation by providing free and impartial advice to householders and small businesses in Warwickshire and the surrounding local areas.

If you are unable to take advantage of the testing programme you can check your own blankets by looking for the following warning signs:

· the fabric is worn or frayed

· there are scorch marks anywhere

· the tie tapes are damaged or missing

· the flex is worn or damaged

· any connections are loose

Remember older blankets in regular use are much more likely to have one or more of the above faults.

For a complete guide to checking your electric blanket, visit our website: www.warwickshire.gov.uk/electricblanket
