Following which? investigation into co alarms that failed safety tests, Energy UK’s CO Be Alarmed! campaign issued the below statement:
Abbie Sampson, Director of External Affairs at Energy UK and CO Be Alarmed! spokesperson, said:
“It’s shocking that Which? have uncovered carbon monoxide alarms on the market that don’t meet vital safety standards. Carbon monoxide (CO) is known as the silent killer as you can’t see it, smell it or taste it so an audible CO alarm is life-saving.
“Our campaign has a simple ABC guide to help households stay safe – do you have an Alarm, has it been tested and are the Batteries working, and have you had an up-to-date gas Check?
“And our video gives easy-to-follow advice on what to look for like when buying an alarm:www.co-bealarmed.co.uk/category/video/”.
