The team place a strong emphasis on having knowledge of gas safety and the importance of having a carbon monoxide alarm fitted in the home.

The Lovick family from Norfolk were unsure what action to take after their carbon monoxide alarm went off, reports EDP24 on June 13. The alarm alerted the family to the presence of carbon monoxide 30 minutes after their boiler switched on. Whilst Mr Lovick and their three children left the house shortly after the alarm sounded, Mrs Lovick remained in the house to make various calls in an attempt to find out what they should do. After calling NHS direct, the family were told to seek medical attention.

Mrs Lovick told EDP24: “We could have died. I think it is shocking that nobody we called knew what we needed to do.”
