Electric blankets and heating pads cause almost 500 fires every year. Almost all of these fires involve electric blankets that are over 10 years old.
To avoid this type of fire, observe these safety tips:
- Inspect the blanket. Look for dark, charred or frayed spots. Also check the cord, make sure it isn’t cracked or frayed.
- Do not place anything on top of a heating pad or electric blanket when its in use. This includes pets, or other blankets. This may cause overheating.
- Never fold electric blankets when they are in use. Folded or tucked-in blankets could also overheat.
- Never leave an electric blanket unattended, or use one while you are asleep.
