Experts will be heading to Exmouth and Sidmouth to promote gas safety as part of a national safety week.

East Devon District Council’s housing property and asset team and Liberty Gas have teamed up for Gas Safety Week to host two events to highlight the dangers of carbon monoxide.

The first of the two events will be held at Albion Court in Rolle Road, Exmouth, from 10am to 4pm on Tuesday (September 20).

A second session will take place from 10am to 4pm in Trumps Court, Sidmouth, on Thursday (September 22).

An EDDC spokeswoman said: “Officers from the property and asset team as well as Liberty Gas will be attending both days and there will be trained gas engineers on hand to answer questions.

“Information will be given about the dangers of CO and how it affects people. We will be advising people about how they can protect their homes, plus we will be highlighting the importance of gas servicing to everyone, whether they are East Devon tenants or members of the public.”

Residents who attend the event can enter into a draw to win a CO alarm, which helps to detect carbon monoxide leaks.
