Don't Risk Your Family's Health; Install Carbon Monoxide Detectors
Throughout Your Home Today
Carbon monoxide (CO) is a gas that is created when fossil fuels are burned
(such as coal, wood and oil). It's not something we can see, taste
or smell, but in large quantities, it can be dangerous and even deadly
to our bodies. Unfortunately, many appliances in your home such as hot
water heaters, gas stoves, and fireplaces create an abundance of carbon
monoxide simply from day to day operation.
The purpose of a carbon monoxide detector is to determine the presence
and level of carbon monoxide (CO) gas. If levels are high enough to create
a danger for carbon monoxide poisoning, the detector will sound an alarm.
To protect your family, you should install multiple CO detectors throughout
your home and test them monthly.
