13 October 2023
Jersey Fire and Rescue Service (JFRS) will again be supporting Jersey Electricity's (JE) annual electric blanket safety testing on Wednesday 18th October and Thursday 19th October 2023.
No need to book, simply take your electric blanket along on:
- Wednesday 18th October to Western Fire Station, between 10am and 3pm
- Thursday 19th October 2023 to Fire Headquarters, Rouge Bouillon, between 10am and 3pm.
The free safety test will be completed by Jersey Electricity's electrical engineers.
If it can't be tested on the spot while you wait, they will tell you what time you can collect it if it passes the test.
If your blanket fails the safety test, Jersey Electricity will keep and dispose of it. You will receive a Powerhouse 10% discount voucher, which can be redeemed against the purchase of a new one.
JFRS recommend that all electric blankets over 10 years old should be replaced. For this reason, JE staff will not test any blankets over 10 years old but will provide a Powerhouse 10% discount voucher in return for your old electric blanket.
A Community Fire Safety Officer will also be on hand throughout the testing to offer advice on fire safety in the home.
