Carbon Monoxide Awareness Week 2015

The dangers associated with carbon monoxide are promoted to the general public every year through Carbon Monoxide Awareness Week. This year, carbon monoxide campaigner and canary balladeer, Tommy McAnairey, leads the charge and will be singing and crooning across the airwaves to help spread the word.

Tommy is releasing a single ‘Carbon Monoxide is Lethal as Hell’ on the 18th of September. The song is a way to get people talking about carbon monoxide and features his unique take on all of the safety messages. All profits from the single will go to Age Action to support the installation of carbon monoxide alarms in the homes of vulnerable older people in Ireland.

As Tommy will tell you, carbon monoxide can be lethal. But there’s a lot you can do to safeguard against it. Remember:

  • Carbon monoxide can be released by any fuel that burns, including coal, turf, oil, gas and wood
  • Get fuel-burning appliances serviced and chimneys swept every year
  • Install an audible carbon monoxide alarm in your home
