Children are learning about the dangers of carbon monoxide in the classroom, Runcorn and Widnes World has reported.
Lynn Griffiths, president of the charity Carbon Monoxide Awareness and founder of Carbon Monoxide Awareness Week, has secured funding from Halton Housing Trust to develop an educational pilot project for primary and secondary schools.
Pupils at Halton Lodge Primary School were the first to experience the result.
Ms Griffiths has been campaigning since her family was poisoned 16 years ago because of a blocked flue from the fire in the living room of their former home.
Ms Griffiths said: “It was fantastic. The children created 30 drawings to highlight the dangers, such as not taking barbecues into tents and caravans and the need to keep homes ventilated. I’m hoping we can roll this programme out nationally.”
