Electric blanket checks

ANGUS Community Safety Partnership is linking up with the Electrical Safety Council to hold safety days throughout the county.

During the next three weeks, days will be held focusing particularly on electric blanket safety.

If a blanket is found to be faulty, it can be exchanged for a voucher to help replace it with a new one.

Sessions taking place locally include a day in Arbroath on Wednesday, October 24 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the fire station in Ponderlaw Street.

The partnership will be visiting Monifieth fire station in North Balmossie Street on Friday, October 26 between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.

And on Wednesday, October 31, the team will be at Carnoustie fire station, Kinloch Street between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.
