Carbon Monoxide Safe 4 Summer Campaign!

This is week three of the #CarbonMonoxideSafe4Summer campaign!


A special thank you to Barry Sheerman MP for launching the campaign and sharing excellent coverage!


Thank so much to all those who have been supporting us on social media. There has been some excellent campaign recognition this week, the APPCOG was delighted to see #CarbonMonoxideSafe4Summer supported by Visit England Biz, the National Care Association and various camping and tourist organisations. This is down to the hard work of all those sharing messages and taking part in supporting activities – let’s keep up the good work!


Please keep using the hashtag #CarbonMonoxideSafe4Summer and tagging @APPCOG_UK so we can maximise our impact.

Focus this week:


  1. CO risks: BBQs – safe use, both LPG and solid fuel
  2. Boat Safety
