What to do in an emergency!

If someone collapses due to Carbon Monoxide poisoning:

  • Remove the victim from the contaminated area immediately;
  • Place them in the open air;
  • Give pure oxygen if available;
  • Keep them at rest - avoiding all exertion; and
  • Call for medical help urgently.

Remember: evacuate, ventilate, communicate

If you suspect that an appliance is leaking carbon monoxide turn it off, open all doors and windows and get it checked by a qualified professional as soon as possible.
