If your telecare carbon monoxide alarm goes off your help centre will give you advice and contact any necessary services. General advice for reacting to a carbon monoxide alarm going off is to turn off your appliances (boilers, gas fires, water heaters, solid fuel appliances and open fires) at once. Immediately allow fresh air into the premises by opening doors and windows. Call a qualified technician and have them investigate and resolve the problem before relighting appliances. If you or anyone else in your property is experiencing symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning: headaches, dizziness, vomiting, call the fire brigade and immediately move outside. Do not re-enter the premises until it has been aired out and the problem corrected.
A carbon monoxide alarm should be located near your bedroom, where it can wake you if you are asleep. Additional alarms can be installed on other storeys and in every bedroom of a home for extra protection. A detector should not be placed within a metre of heating or cooking appliances or in or near very humid areas such as bathrooms.
