Welcome to The Carbon Monoxide and Gas Safety Society website

Survivors/victims

I am sorry you have had to visit this website at all. Please contact us as soon as possible. If you wait I may not be able to help you as much as if you had called immediately.

I, Stephanie Trotter, try to operate an informal helpline Mobile 07803 088688. If you can't get through try leaving a message and sending a text but make sure you leave a correct number for me to call you back on. Thank you.

If I become overwhelmed I will put a lawyer's number on this website here.

Meanwhile you could read more here.

If you are able to email please email Stephanie on the following email address which is:- office@co-gassafety.co.uk

Our new website was launched in late July early August 2015. If you have any questions, Stephanie Trotter can be contacted on office@co-gassafety.co.uk or on 07803 088688.

Stephanie will be updating the website gradually over the next few weeks or months. There were a few teething problems with getting used to editing the new website.
