Carbon Monoxide is a deadly gas, which kills around 50 people each year. In addition over 2,000 people attend A&E with suspected carbon monoxide poisoning every year. Known as the ‘silent killer’ it is particularly dangerous as you cannot see, taste or smell it, causing it to be invisible to the human senses.
Awareness of Carbon Monoxide (CO) poisoning around the summer season has risen in recent years. However, according to CORGI Home Plan only 13% of people have had their camping and caravanning appliances serviced, with almost half of people (45%) admitting to cooking in their tent or under a canvas.
