Carbon monoxide alarmThe charity Carbon Monoxide Awareness is urging people to show their support for National Carbon Monoxide Awareness Week, which will take place from November 18-24.

The event, now in its eighth year, aims to raise awareness about the dangers of carbon monoxide, and to help people learn more about the dangerous gas. The charity is urging people to get involved in a variety of ways, including:

  • Updating your carbon monoxide materials with the charity's logo and messages
  • Using social media to warn about the dangers of carbon monoxide
  • Holding a community event to make everyone aware of the importance of being carbon monoxide aware
  • Working with schools and youth groups such as scouts or girl guides to warn them about the dangers of carbon monoxide in the home, while camping or on boats.
