Week 3 All Party Parliamentary Carbon Monoxide Group Summer campaign

Week 3: Carbon Monoxide Alarms Save Lives


For the third week of the campaign, we are going deeper into the alarms messaging, and informing people why they need to buy the right kind of alarm and get to know how to use it. The Alarms 1-page guide reviews key features to consider when choosing an alarm.


Some of the more intricate messages about alarms are detailed and can vary between products, in this instance we have suggested people read the manufacturers guide, which will usually be available online.


In addition to the statement from Baroness Finlay, I have attached a position guide image from HETAS, which may be useful to share if you think this would be relevant to your audience.


Thanks so much to everyone for making a huge noise about carbon monoxide alarms!

Let’s keep it up to make sure everyone hears our message!
