The Scottish Environmental Incident Surveillance System (SEISS) recorded the following incident in the past week: 

  • On 7 March 2020, BBC news reported the evacuation of a primary school in Milngavie, following a carbon monoxide leak. Pupils and staff temporarily left Craigdhu School after a newly fitted alarm picked up traces of the gas. The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service (SFRS) later confirmed that one of two gas boilers had developed a fault. This is the third primary school in East Dunbartonshire evacuated due to carbon monoxide leaks in recent weeks.
