A third of homes do not have a carbon monoxide alarm

Parents spend on average over £200 on safety equipment a year to protect their children, yet new research for the Carbon Monoxide Be-Alarmed! campaign has revealed a staggering third of parents admit they do not have a carbon monoxide alarm in their home…

Those with children under twelve months were found to be the least likely to have one (42%). Stairgates (74%), baby monitors (68%), plug covers (56%), cupboard and draw locks (51%) and smoke alarms (51%) all came above CO alarms in the list of ‘must have’ safety items.

CO Be-Alarmed! campaign urges people to follow the simple ABC checklist – Do you have an Alarm fitted? Have you tested it and are the Batteries working? Have you had an up to date gas Check?
Lawrence Slade, CO Be Alarmed! spokesperson, said: “Carbon monoxide is known as the silent killer because you cannot see it, taste it or smell it so an alarm can be life-saving. Protect yourself and your family from this silent killer by getting an alarm today.” For more information about how to stay safe, visit
