Carbon Monoxide Awareness Week 2014 is on September 22nd – 28th
We have all heard of the dangers that come with carbon monoxide. It’s a silent killer! In an effort to generate more public awareness on this subject this is Carbon Monoxide awareness week and it is aimed at ALL carbon fuel users so…………….
Importantly, the week is aimed at all carbon fuel users.
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.
