At our #GasSafeXmas twitter chat we’re talking about how to have a safe Christmas including the serious issue of carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning at Christmas. Often the symptoms can be confused for a Christmas cold or flu, but the consequences can be dangerous, even life threatening. Take part in the chat and you could win 1 of 10 £25 shopping vouchers, simply for sharing your stories, tips and concerns!
As temperatures plummet, households across the country may be cranking up their heating, popping their turkey in the oven for hours on end, and working their boilers hard. If your appliances run on gas, it’s important to know that they’re working safe and sound. If they’re not, they can leak deadly carbon monoxide or cause a fire.
Findings from @GasSafeRegister show that around 1 in every 6 gas appliances they inspect is found to be unsafe. They’ll be joining us for our Twitter Chat on Friday 8 December from 1pm to raise awareness about what you can do to ensure your family are gas safe at home, and also post about the symptoms of CO poisoning.
The Twitter chat is sponsored by Gas Safe Register, which is the register of all gas engineers who are legally qualified to work on gas appliances. It exists to protect you, your family and your property from unsafe gas work.
Come share your questions, thoughts and stories about how to have a safe Christmas and the issue of CO poisoning during the festive season!
