Senator Jimmy Harte has welcomed the beginning of a week of publicity Launched by Minister Rabbitte to highlight the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning.

“We here in Donegal have had direct experience of this in the past with tragic consequences, thankfully due to this awareness campaign by the media things have improved. 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,” Senator Harte said.

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.
