Safety in the home - is your electric blanket safe?

Most of us tuck our electric blanket away in a cupboard during the summer, and don't think about it until the frosty nights return. But can you be sure that it will still be safe to use?

Together with Oxfordshire County Council's Trading Standards and Fire & Rescue services we offer a free electric blanket testing service during September and October. 

The aim of testing is to take any dangerous blankets out of circulation. During the 2010 campaign out of 815 blankets tested, a huge 321 failed completely and were taken out of service because they were dangerous to use.
