Firefighters urge people to get electric blankets tested at Somerset stations

FIREFIGHTERS are offering free electric blanket testing as winter draws in.
Community safety officer Carol Frances said: "In previous years, 40% of all blankets we have tested have failed the checks.
"Faulty electric blankets can cause serious fires, but these can be prevented by taking the right precautions and having them tested."
