About Carbon Monoxide
Carbon monoxide (CO) gas is produced by the burning of fuel.
It is poisonous, and even a small amount can cause loss of consciousness and death.
In the UK more than 50 people die from accidental carbon monoxide poisoning every year and over 200 people are seriously injured.
Carbon monoxide is hard to detect because it has no smell taste or colour.
Incorrectly fitted stoves and leaking chimneys are potentially lethal to your home and its inhabitants.
