Book now for a free electric blanket test in September or October

Oxfordshire County Council is now advertising its annual programme of free electric blanket safety checks. These electric blanket tests are normally very popular and places are limited.  So, if you want to have a blanket checked, you must pre-book a test by phoning 01865 895999 or emailing

Tests in West Oxfordshire will take place on Thursday, 21 September and Thursday, 5 October. The actual location and a specific time slot will be provided when you make a booking:

Testing electric blankets has taken place in Oxfordshire for over 20 years. Apparently, the failure rate is regularly around 30 per cent, emphasising the value of getting electric blankets checked

Please alert anyone you know who might benefit from a blanket test.
