How do I know if my CO alarm went off because of Carbon Monoxide?

Recommended Posts

If your CO alarm goes off for for than just a very brief period realistically you should follow the official advice:

If your carbon monoxide alarm sounds or you suspect a leak:

  • 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 on 0800 111 999 to report the incident, or the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) Gas Safety Advice Line on 0800 300 363
  • Don't 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 any exposure by itself
