The All Party Parliamentary Carbon Monoxide Group (APPCOG), of which FireAngel is a member of, has launched the ‘Carbon Monoxide Safe 4 Summer’ 2021 campaign to raise awareness of the often unknown risks of carbon monoxide poisoning that arise in the summer months, and inform the public on how to stay safe.
The campaign kicked off with a launch event, hosted by APPCOG and chaired by Mr Barry Sheerman MP, which FireAngel were pleased to attend. We joined with MPs and peers to promote the important message of staying carbon monoxide safe in the summer months.
#CarbonMonoxideSafe4Summer highlights the use of BBQs and outdoor heaters safely by ventilating properly and encourages the public to take a carbon monoxide alarm with them wherever they are going for a summer holiday.
The campaign is supported by a wide range of organisations including: United Against CO, Steve Vick International, Cadent, Northern Gas Networks, SGN, Wales & West Utilities, Domestic and General, IGEM, CoGDEM (The Council of Gas Detection and Environmental Monitoring), Liquid Gas UK, Safer Tourism Foundation, CO Research Trust, Katie Haines Memorial Trust, HETAS and APPCOG.
