Electric Blanket Testing Road Shows

September 4, 2012

As fatal fires claim 12 lives this year across Northern Ireland, the Southern Trust would like to remind the public of its free electric blanket testing service and the need to take steps to prevent fire. Each year old or faulty electric blankets cause fires.

The next road shows will take place at Crossmaglen Community Centre on Thursday 13 September 2012 at 10am-4pm. Appointments are necessary.

To book an appointment contact Karen Faloon on 028 3083 4325

Gerard Rocks, Assistant Director of Promoting Wellbeing, said “It is advisable to have an electric blanket tested at least every three years. Just because a blanket is working doesn’t mean that it is safe. If you would like to have your electric blanket tested, please book an appointment in advance of the road show. It is advisable to book an appointment to avoid a lengthy wait.
