Stopping the silent killer in its tracks is the aim of a nation-wide campaign in more than 500 Plumb Center and Parts Center branches this month (May 2013).

Wise up to CO is designed to drive home the message to installers and the public that relatively cheap and easy-to-install CO detectors will save lives. The high-visibility campaign will include external banners, safety cards, dispatch stickers, boiler stickers and information leaflets – as well as special events at branches.

“We’re passionate about this message because it can help save lives,” said Plumb and Parts’ Gail van Dijk. “Any appliance that burns carbon is a potential killer, so we all owe a duty of care to our customers. We can’t just rely on charities to educate and protect the public.”
