Carbon Monoxide Detectors
Carbon monoxide (CO) is an invisible, odorless, colorless gas created when fossil fuels (such as gasoline, wood, coal, propane, oil and methane) burn incompletely. In the home, heating and cooking equipment are possible sources of carbon monoxide. Vehicles running in an attached garage could also produce dangerous levels of carbon monoxide. Because one cannot smell, see, or taste it, carbon monoxide can kill you before you know it is there.
Where do I place my carbon monoxide detector?
Place a carbon monoxide detector near the sleeping area. A second detector should be located near the heating appliance. At least one CO detector should be battery powered.
What do I do when my CO detector goes into alarm?
Get out and call 911. Do not waste time opening windows, this could be deadly. It also allows firefighters to respond with sensitive equipment to trace the source.
What are the symptoms of CO poisoning?
CO poisoning symptoms can mimic the flu. Headaches or feeling better when you leave your home are also possible symptoms
