Carbon Monoxide Detector
For safety and peace of mind on your holiday, a carbon monoxide Detector is a must. Did you know that 40 people in the last two years were sadly killed after being exposed to this gas whilst staying in a tent, caravan, holiday cottage or boat? Carbon monoxide is odourlous, colourless and tasteless so without a carbon monoxide alarm you'd be unable to detect it yourself. Project Shout is a national campaign to raise awareness of the dangers of carbon monoxide. Visit their site for more valuable information about these dangers as well as how you can keep your family safe.
