Gas Networks Ireland is supporting Ireland’s annual Carbon Monoxide Awareness Week from September 22nd to September 28th 2014.
The aim is to promote three key messages for the public to remember about Carbon Monoxide;
- Remember the causes: Carbon Monoxide can be produced when ANY fuel is burnt, including oil, gas, wood, coal and turf.
- Remember to service: To prevent Carbon Monoxide, have appliances serviced annually and keep vents, flues and chimneys clear
- Remember the alarm: Carbon Monoxide is odourless and colourless so for added protection install an audible Carbon Monoxide alarm.
The dangers associated with Carbon Monoxide are promoted to the general public every year, however this year, in an effort to generate greater public engagement on the subject of CO, organisations across the energy and related industries have come together to support this dedicated awareness week.
