It has been reported in This is Cornwall that the death of a family of three in the town after inhaling the gas in their caravan at Tremarle Home Park, has sparked warning from crews at Camborne fire station. Watch Manager Simon Uden explains that the incident “has highlighted the need of maintaining services like gas boilers.” He also emphasises the speed with which the poisoning can turn from a simple headache into unconsciousness. Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service currently provides free smoke detectors although its budget does not not allow for free carbon monoxide detectors.

Naturally the team were pleased to hear that the fire fighters are working to promote awareness of the deadly substances. A representative from the firm shares their thoughts on the matter.

“Carbon monoxide is a highly poisonous substance that is the result of the incomplete burning of gas and liquid petroleum gas and can occur when a gas appliance has been incorrectly fitted, badly repaired or maintained.”

“When breathed in it enters the blood stream, preventing the red blood cells from carrying oxygen which is why it is so important to only ever let a fully qualified engineer carry out work on your appliances. These should be checked annually as even low levels over a long period of time can lead to paralysis and brain damage. It is also worth familiarising yourself with the symptoms of carbon monoxide in order to prevent a situation from worsening.”
