Minister for Communications, Energy and Natural Resources Pat Rabbitte has welcomed the beginning of a two-week publicity campaign to highlight the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning.
Pat Rabbitte said: “I am very pleased to see that good advice on this silent killer is being given to the public in such a high-profile manner. I am particularly pleased to note that the campaign includes advice on how to select a suitable carbon monoxide alarm from the many currently available.
“It is my hope that people will pay attention to this, and that we can prevent any more tragic deaths from occurring. I commend Bord Gais Networks on this important work.”
Press, television and radio messages providing information about how to protect against carbon monoxide poisoning have been prepared by Bord Gais Networks. The campaign is supported by the Register of Gas Installers of Ireland, the National Standards Authority of Ireland, the Irish LPG Association and the Commission for Energy Regulation.
