Trading Standards to offer free electric blanket testing in a bid to reduce fire risk
RESIDENTS in Hart can get their electric blankets tested before the start of the colder weather.
The Hampshire Trading Standards team will carry out free checks on blankets taken to Fleet fire station, in Connaught Road, Fleet, on Wednesday, October 2, and Yateley fire station, in Reading Road, Yateley, on Monday, October 21.
Faulty electric blankets can cause fires and recent checks indicate that 40 per cent of blankets used in Hampshire are unsafe.
