Tom Brake Cautions Constituents against Carbon Monoxide Poisoning in 2007

January 5, 2007 12:24 PM

Tom Brake, MP for Carshalton and Wallington, is urging constituents to protect both themselves and their families from carbon monoxide poisoning in 2007. Mr Brake has noted his support for the carbon monoxide poisoning campaign currently being launched by CORGI, the Council of Registered Gas Installers.

Tom Brake stated that he is "pleased to help CORGI in its campaign to ensure that people have their gas appliances regularly maintained by a CORGI-registered installer and fit an audible CO detector. CO poisoning is entirely preventable but can be a silent killer in the home."

Mr Brake's support follows his involvement in the Carbon Monoxide Awareness Week which took place in the House of Commons between 5th and 8th December by the CO-Awareness charity. The events were meant to emphasize the deadly effects of carbon monoxide poisoning.

Carbon monoxide detectors can currently be purchased locally at many stores including Melvyn Clarke on Green Wrythe Lane in Carshalton, although stocks of the simpler non-digital detectors have run out in some shops because of demand.
