In June The CO Be Alarmed campaign team and Policy Connect’s energy safety team were at Glastonbury Festival raising awareness of the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning at festivals. Emily Eavis, organiser of Glastonbury festival, has recorded a message of support for the campaign.
CO Be Alarmed! has been promoting safety at festivals on its social media channels throughout the week. For those attending festivals: make sure not to bring a BBQ into your tent and know the symptoms of CO poisoning (dizziness, nausea, breathlessness) as they’re similar to those of a hangover. Follow our guide on how to stay safe in the outdoors.
