Carbon Monoxide Awareness and The AACE
The AACE has teamed up with CO Awareness, a charity set up seven years ago to provide support to those poisoned by carbon monoxide and raise awareness about the dangers. You can visit their website here.
What are the issues?
Carbon Monoxide (CO) is a colourless, odourless, highly poisonous gas that can kill in minutes. Carbon Monoxide poisoning can be caused by ANY fuel that burns or smoulders.
Watch out for the symptoms:
- Mild headache
Carbon Monoxide poisoning can strike in many different and unexpected ways. CO Awareness have produced a range of safety posters and leaflets, which are shown below.
