Carbon Monoxide Awareness Week 2013 September 23rd to 29th

(20 Sep 2013)

Importantly, the week is aimed at all carbon fuel users.

Remember, Remember, Remember
As you can see from this website there are many messages related to the dangers of carbon monoxide that need to be promoted.  For Carbon Monoxide Awareness Week, the public are being asked to remember three things that can help protect them against this silent killer using the mnemonic Remember, Remember, Remember;

the causes – Carbon Monoxide can be produced when ANY fuel is burnt, including oil, gas, wood and coal.

to service – To prevent Carbon Monoxide, ensure your appliances are installed and serviced annually by a Registered Gas Installer, a Registered Oil Technician, or a qualified service agent for your fuel type.  Also make sure vents, flues and chimneys are kept clear.

the alarm – Carbon Monoxide is odourless and colourless so for added protection install an audible carbon monoxide alarm.  Make sure the alarm complies with EN 50291, carries a CE mark, has an end of life indicator and carries an independent certification mark.

View this short video for advice on the best place to locate carbon monoxide alarms in your home.

Fuel customers will receive a Carbon Monoxide information leaflet with their bill in the run up to the Carbon Monoxide Awareness Week.
