Carbon Monoxide – Be Alarmed! campaign

After attending a recent Parliamentary awareness event Justin Madders, MP for Ellesmere Port and Neston, is supporting the Carbon Monoxide – Be Alarmed! campaign which aims to ensure everyone protects themselves and their families from this poisonous gas.

Justin said:

“Carbon Monoxide (CO) kills by stealth as people can’t see, smell or taste it. Around 40 people die in Britain every year from CO poisoning and it is estimated 4,603 in Ellesmere Port and Neston are at risk. CO can be produced by any fuel-burning appliance – such as a boiler and cooker- or an open fire which is faulty or doesn’t have adequate ventilation.

“According to recent research nearly half the population does not have an audible carbon monoxide alarm and four in ten people have not had their gas boiler serviced in the last year.

“That’s why I am supporting calls from the Carbon Monoxide – Be Alarmed! campaign to ensure everyone in Ellesmere Port and Neston is aware of the dangers of carbon monoxide and has a CO alarm.”
