Protect your Family from Carbon Monoxide

Install at least one carbon monoxide detector near the sleeping area.  In addition to installing carbon monoxide detectors, regular inspection and service of potential problem sources of carbon monoxide should be done.  If your carbon monoxide detector alerts you, take all members of your family to a neighbor's house.  Call 911 from there.  Be sure to give your own address or the 911 system will direct us to your neighbors.  If you ventilate your house, then the fire department will not be able to test for the actual level of carbon monoxide in your home when we arrive with our gas detection equipment.  Many alerts are due to faulty detectors, and the only way for us to tell is to check ourselves.
