Installers in Northern Ireland have been snapping up thousands of FireAngel carbon monoxide (CO) alarms in support of manufacturer, Sprue Safety Products campaign with the Gis A Hug Foundation to keep more people safe from the dangers of this deadly gas.
Sprue is donating one carbon monoxide alarm to Gis A Hug for every 20 FireAngel CO-9XT alarms sold from wholesalers and merchants who have signed up to the campaign.
Having had personal experience of the tragic consequences of this silent killer, Catherine and Johnny McFerran set up the Gis A Hug Foundation in a bid to make more people aware of the risks and protect vulnerable groups against the dangers.
The Gis A Hug Foundation does a tremendous job in raising awareness of carbon monoxide and has already provided thousands of CO alarms to the elderly, students and other vulnerable groups, said Brian Trueman, Sprues area specification manager for Scotland and Ireland.
The FireAngel CO-9XT is based on the most advanced electrochemical sensors available for the domestic market to give an early warning of the presence of carbon monoxide. Certified to the European Standard BS EN 50291-1: 2010, this battery-operated alarm is easy to install with a fast-fix single pin bracket, simple to set up and features a tamper-proof internal power pack that has a guaranteed seven-year life.
