CO Awareness Week – 22nd-28th November 2021
New resources available

 

Welcome to the Think CO newsletter celebrating Carbon Monoxide Awareness Week 2021.

22nd-28th November 2021

As part of the Carbon Monoxide Awareness Week 2021 campaign, everyone at Think CO would encourage you to download the Asset Kit which is full of useful ideas to help promote CO awareness with the people, communities and organisations that you work with and support. 

The kit is a comprehensive zip file that contains everything you need in the build up to and throughout the week.

To download the kit, click here:http:// https://www.unitedagainstco.com/coaw2021

It includes information about carbon monoxide barbecue safety, symptoms, most at risk, CO alarms, and the new ‘C.O.M.A.’ Information for 2021. Assets included are:

  • Social Media Posts – for general carbon monoxide awareness and C.O.M.A.
  • Fact Sheets – including most at risk, dangers out of the home, how to stay safe, and the symptoms of CO
  • Images – including barbecues, alarms, at risk, symptoms
  • COAW 2021 and United Against CO Logos
  • Flyer and web ad banner

 

As part of Think CO’s contribution to Carbon Monoxide Awareness Week 2021 next week, we have developed a series of videos for you to use with your teams and your clients. 

Each share the key safety messages of knowing the sources, signs and symptoms of CO poisoning and risks, as well as how to prevent it.

Working with Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Service, the Shree Sanatan Mandir and Community Centre in Leicester, FireAngel and Cadent, we have developed videos in English and Hindi which are both subtitled in English. They can be shown as part of a training or induction course and/or as part of a visit where they can be shown to a client.

We have also developed a BSL signed and subtitled video for people with hearing loss.  All three videos are available on the Gas Safe Charity’s YouTube channel and can be downloaded for free.

The Hindi video is available by clicking here:https://youtu.be/RyHgCkIYw1E

The English video is available from here:http:// https://youtu.be/CSQ6pzgZdus

The BSL signed and subtitled video available here:https://youtu.be/FgKxkC80ifM

We’d really like to know how you use the films and the impact that they have.  Email us at thinkco@gassafecharity.org.uk
