This No Smoking Day (Wednesday 8 March), people in Calderdale are invited to ‘Know your CO’ with free Carbon Monoxide testing available.

From now until Friday 10 March, Yorkshire Smokefree Calderdale is offering free testing of people’s Carbon monoxide levels, every morning from 9.30am to 12 noon at the Laura Mitchell Health and Wellbeing Centre, Great Albion Street, Halifax.

Carbon monoxide is one of the 4000 chemicals inhaled from tobacco smoke. It is a colourless, odourless and highly poisonous gas better known as a hazard given off by faulty gas appliances.

The carbon monoxide test takes just a few minutes, and involves holding the breath for at least 10 seconds, then blowing into a monitor.
