Electrical Safety Fund: Press Release

Reducing fire risks in electric blankets

With almost half of all domestic fires – that’s 20,000 each year – caused by electricity, Middlesbrough Environment City are holding a series of Fire Safety Awareness events exchanging old & dangerous single, double and king-size electric blankets for new ones.

The first event is scheduled to take place from 11am on Wednesday 21st December 2022 at Middlesbrough Green Hub based in Middlesbrough Bus Station

Funded by “Electrical Safety First”, the Awareness Day will offer electric blanket exchanges, please bring along your old or dangerous electric blanket and we will swap it free of charge for a new one.  There will also be information on fire safety in the home and an affordable warmth advisor from Middlesbrough Environment City giving tips on how to stay warm during the cold months.

Electrical Safety First is a campaigning charity dedicated to preventing deaths, injuries and damage caused by electricity. To find out more, go to www.electricalsafetyfirst.org.uk
