700 oil-filled heaters going into Staffordshire homes
Written by Hitmix Local News on 3 March 2021
Around 700 oil-filled heaters are going into Staffordshire homes as part of an ongoing project to keep the most vulnerable warm throughout winter.
And they are being issued at an opportune time as the Fire and Rescue Service reiterated they were safer to use than electricity-powered heaters after a fire in a bungalow was caused by one in the Western Downs area of Stafford last month.
The oil-filled heaters have been secured by the County Council and are being distributed in conjunction with the fire service and the charity Beat The Cold – all part of the wider Warmer Homes scheme.
