Are you protected?
Carbon monoxide (CO) is a colourless, odourless, and tasteless toxic gas that is produced when fuel is burned incompletely. Meaning any item that can burn carbon-based fuels is a risk in the home - including cookers, fire places, and boilers.
As there has been a 10% increase in NHS reported incidents of carbon monoxide poisoning - from 2,220 cases in 2014 to 2,430 cases in 2016 - it is of growing importance that people are aware of the dangers of CO, and know how to protect themselves against it.
