A new film to raise awareness of the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning was shown at the re-launch of the All-Party Parliamentary Carbon Monoxide Group in Parliament on the 15th October.
The film was produced by the Katie Haines Memorial Trust to raise awareness of this silent killer and prompt people to install an audible CO alarm.
Trustee Gordon Samuel encouraged everyone to share the film and hopes
such advertising and awareness campaigns become standard practice in
the near future.
“We’re very, very pleased to have it out at this time of the year when boilers and gas fires are being switched on,” he said.
The Trust also emphasises the importance of regularly maintaining
appliances that burn gas or other fossil fuels, with gas appliances
being serviced by a Gas Safe registered engineer.
