Gas Safe Charity seeking more partners

15th Nov 2012

Following the news that the Carbon Monoxide Awareness charity faces closure, a programme which raises awareness of carbon monoxide poisoning is on the look out for more local partners to champion its cause. 

The Be Gas Safe programme was launched across England earlier in the year and has so far seen more than 3,000 carbon monoxide alarms distributed to older people and families with young children, both of which are regarded as key risk groups. Now the Gas Safe Charity along with the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) is appealing for more organisations to get on board and join forces with the 15 local partnerships already established to highlight the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning.

Commenting on the programme the RoSPA's public health project manager Ashley Martin said: “As we prepare to enter the winter period, many people will begin to switch on their heating to fight off the winter chill. Carbon monoxide is known as the 'silent killer' because you cannot see it, taste it or smell it. That's why steps need to be taken to reduce the risk.”

Be Gas Safe is making a real difference in helping save lives and reduce carbon monoxide related illnesses and accidents and is keen to hear from potential partners across England and Wales.
