This week's safety tip:
From time to time, residents may smell natural gas when a line is accidentally cut. Did you know there’s a gas you can’t smell?
Of course we’re talking about Carbon Monoxide (CO). It is an invisible, odorless, and colorless gas. That’s why it’s important to have CO alarms in your home.
Here are some things to keep in mind:
Carbon Monoxide alarms should be installed in a central location, outside of every sleeping area in the home.
When heating your car, make sure to pull out of the garage first. Even if the garage door is open, CO can build up in the garage and possibly make you sick.
If you’re unsure if your home has CO alarms, check your smoke alarms on your ceiling outside of the sleeping areas. Newer homes often times have combination alarms that can detect smoke and CO.
If the CO alarm sounds, get to fresh air immediately and dial 911.
Each Tuesday, we encourage everyone to take a moment and talk about it. This week, we encourage you to talk about holiday safety. We’ll keep the topics and tips coming.
