Giveaway #93 : 5 x Ei204 Carbon Monoxide alarms up for grabs - closed - winners @ashlallan @MrsD_Winchester @ericahughes @anna8301 @rhodak09


As a parent, our biggest job is to protect our children from the big wide world but what about the dangers lurking closer to home?

With over 1 million children under the age of 15 experiencing accidents in and around the home every year, Ei Electronics – market leader in fire and Carbon Monoxide home safety – will once again be promoting and encouraging families to ‘make time for safety’, the theme for this year’s Child Safety Week , which runs from 20th – 26th June 2011 and is organised by the Child Accident Prevention Trust.



Carbon Monoxide is an odourless, colourless and tasteless gas produced by the incomplete combustion of fossil fuels such as gas, oil, coal and wood. Dangerous amounts of Carbon Monoxide can accumulate as a result of poor ventilation, poor maintenance or failure/damage to an appliance in service.



Although Carbon Monoxide can affect anyone, children, pregnant women and babies are those most at risk. In addition, symptoms in children can be particularly hard to recognise due to their limited vocabulary, however here are some signs to look out for:

Headaches

Nausea

Drowsiness

Vomiting

‘Flu’ like symptoms

Palpitations

Chest Pain

Collapse

Neurological problems which can affect performance, concentration and cognitive behaviour, which in turn can affect school work, behaviour and memory.



Carbon Monoxide detectors such as the kite marked Ei204 alarm are the only way to alert you to dangerous levels of Carbon Monoxide before tragedy strikes. The Ei204 uses a proven electrochemical cell type sensor which checks Carbon Monoxide concentration every 50 seconds.



In addition to an alarm, other precautions should be implemented to safeguard you and your family from Carbon Monoxide poisoning:

Always ensure that boiler and heating systems are installed, maintained and regularly serviced by a registered CORGI engineer.

Always make sure chimneys and flues are swept clean.

Ensure vents in the home are kept clear and rooms are kept ventilated.



Looking after a child is a full time job and keeping them safe will keep you busy at the best of times, so take one less worry out of your life by making sure you and your family are protected against Carbon Monoxide.



Ei Electronics are offering 5 people the chance to win an Ei204 Carbon Monoxide alarm.
