Housing Services at Darlington Borough Council has ordered a substantial number of CO alarms from Safelincs to supply their residents with this potentially life-saving equipment. The CO alarms are distributed by the Council’s Home Improvement Agency handypersons visiting households. Safelincs carried out the training of the staff with regards to siting, installation and maintenance of the carbon monoxide alarms.
CO gas (carbon monoxide) is an invisible and tasteless byproduct of the combustion processes, such as in gas boilers etc and can lead to headaches, flu like symptoms, loss of consciousness and even death. It is very important that households using any combustion processes for heating or cooking monitor the CO content of their homes with a carbon monoxide alarm, such as https://www.safelincs.co.uk/carbon-monoxide-detectors/
