Chelmer Chimney's - Carbon Monoxide Awarness

Our friends at Chelmer Chimney's wanted to share some advice to keep you safe and make you aware of the dangers from Carbon monoxide.

In your home
Make sure your stove or range cooker is professionally installed and regularly serviced,

Carbon Monoxide (CO) is a colourless, odourless, highly poisonous gas that can kill in minutes. Carbon Monoxide poisoning can be caused by ANY fuel that burns or smoulders.

Watch out for the symptoms
-Headaches - Dizziness - Nausea - Vomiting - Fatigue - Drowsiness - Confusion - Difficulty breathing - Vision changes - Clumsiness

Going Camping this Summer?

The carbon monoxide from a badly adjusted camping light or stove can kill.

Barbecues in enclosed spaces are lethal, too.

Make sure your camping light and stove are clean and properly adjusted. Never take a portable barbecue - or lit charcoal - into an enclosed space like a tent or caravan.
Make sure exhaust from generators is properly vented away from occupied areas.

Risks from fire and toxic gas are principal considerations and we can discuss and advise you on these matters. However, we also recommend that you visit the Fire Safety and Carbon Monoxide Aware websites for information on how to keep your home and your family safe.
