An Invisible Killer

Carbon Monoxide poisoning occurs most often during the winter months. Make sure you are knowledgeable about the warning signs and ways to keep you and your family safe.

  • Have a working and properly installed CO alarm with backup battery in hallways near sleeping areas.
  • Never ignore CO alarm. Do not try to find the source. Immediately move outside and call 911.
  • Test alarms and replace batteries yearly.
  • Have all fuel burning home heating systems inspected and serviced annually.
  • Never operate portable gas powered generator in or near an enclosed space.
  • Never use charcoal grill in or near a house or garage.
  • Never use gas range or oven to heat a home or business.
  • Never start your car in an enclosed space, such as an attached garage.
