Be Gas Safe in Moseley
In 2012, Moseley Community Development Trust was awarded a grant from the Gas Safety Trust to help raise awareness about Gas Safety in the neighbourhood in particular with the families from Park Hill School. At the bottom of the page, you can download the projects evaluation report
A new film, created by Park Hill Primary school and a professional arts team, uses a multi media approach and strong visuals combining drama, film, animation and digital graphics to appeal to people from a wide range of backgrounds and abilities and for those whose first language is not English. The DVD is called “Monoxide Mole investigates” and you can view the film on You Tube http://youtu.be/Yk4CqXyVjnA

The Trust helps to raise awareness about Carbon Monoxide poisoning and gas safety
If your gas appliance (cooker, gas fire, boiler) is not burning gas correctly or the flue has not been fitted properly, Carbon Monoxide (CO) can be produced and enter in to your home. CO is known as the silent killer and the HSE estimates that 15 people die each year from CO poisoning.
What are the symptons of CO poisoning
headaches or dizziness
loss of consciousness
pains in the chest or stomach
If you or your family experience any of the above symptoms and believe you may have been exposed to carbon monoxide, you should seek urgent medical advice from either your GP or an A&E department.
In an emergency
Gas Safety checks and repairs
If you are having gas work done in your home or workplace you should only use a Gas Safe registered engineer
