What are the signs of Carbon Monoxide poisoning?
Is anyone else in the house affected? (Including pets)
Do your symptoms improve when you're out of the house?
Are your heating and cooking appliances properly maintained and have repairs been carried out by competent engineers (e.g. GasSafe registered) where gas is involved?
Do you have a working carbon monoxide alarm?
- Stop using all appliances. Switch them off and open doors and windows to ventilate the property
- Evacuate the property immediately. Stay calm and avoid raising your heart rate
- Call the Gas Emergency number 0800 111 999 to report the incident, or the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) Gas Safety Advice Line on 0800 300 363
- Do not go back into the property. Wait for advice from the emergency services
- Seek immediate medical help; you may not realise you've been affected by the carbon monoxide and going outside into fresh air won't treat exposure
