Carbon monoxide detectors supplied by Wales and West Utilities

7 March 2019 Posted by

Cornwall Fire and Rescue Community Safety Service (CFRCCS) has created a new partnership with Wales and West Utilities (WWU). WWU are the gas emergency and pipeline service that covers Wales and south west England and as part of their social obligation have joined with CFRCCS to help make Cornwall Safer.

As part of this new partnership, WWU have supplied CFRCSS with a number of Carbon Monoxide Detectors for staff to fit, in accordance with WWU criteria, when carrying out Home Fire Safety Checks (HFSC’s) or Living Safe and Well Visits (LSWV).

 

 

 

WWU criteria outlines that the free CO detectors will be available to people living with:

  • A serious health condition,
  • Mobility issues,
  • Living in a cold home,
  • Fuel poverty
  • Evidence of damp and condensation

When a Co detector is fitted in a home, a WWU Customer Survey form will be completed by the resident and the forms will then be returned to WWU to allow them to evaluate the effectiveness of the partnership in a bid to secure future free CO detectors for those people most in need in Cornwall.

For further information regarding this new partnership please contact Watch Manager Mark Grenfell: Mark.Grenfell@fire.cornwall.gov.uk
