Carbon monoxide gas is a silent killer who won’t think twice before taking the lives of those you love. Every year in the UK, over 200 people are hospitalised with suspected carbon monoxide poisoning, which leads to around 50 deaths. It is a highly poisonous gas that has no colour, taste or smell. It is invisible to the human senses.
Caravans and boats may have additional risks of carbon monoxide admission through air vents, due to the nearby presence of other vehicles, engines, generators or barbecues. Because of this, caravans and boats should be fitted with an alarm in the same room as any combustion appliance. Camping is also a potential risk due to camp fires and barbecues.
Always fit a carbon monoxide alarm with any diesel heater or gas cooker.
FIT AN ALARM AND MAKE SURE ANY DIESEL HEATER YOU PURCHASE ARE CE MARKED.
DON'T SKIMP ON SAFETY...
