Do you or one of your family use an electric blanket?

Pop along to one of the events below and have it checked for free.

You can also get your small home appliances tested on the day for £1/item.

Cornwall Fire, Rescue and Community Safety Service will be on hand to offer advice on fire safety around your home, along with Devon and Cornwall Police and Community Energy Plus.

There's no need to book, just turn up at any of the events and they'll have it checked while you wait. If you have five or more blankets to check they can collect and return these for you the same day if you are unable to get to the event. Please contact 01208 893133 to arrange this.
