Ballymena Borough Council is supporting Gas Safety Week which s running from September 16-22.

Gas Safety Week is an annual safety week to raise awareness of gas safety and the importance of taking care of your gas appliances.

It is co-ordinated by Gas Safe Register, the official list of gas engineers who are legally allowed to work on your gas boiler, gas cooker and gas fire.

Badly fitted and poorly serviced gas appliances can cause gas leaks, fires, explosions and carbon monoxide poisoning.

For gas safety advice or to find and check an engineer visit the Gas Safe Register website at www.GasSafeRegister.co.uk.
