Often called the invisible killer, carbon monoxide is an odorless, colorless gas created when fuels (such as gasoline, wood, coal, natural gas, propane, oil, and methane) burn incompletely. In the home, heating and cooking equipment that burn fuel can be sources of carbon monoxide.
CO alarms should be installed in a central location outside each sleeping area, every level of the home and in other locations where required in accordance with applicable codes, or standards. For the best protection, interconnect all CO alarms throughout the home. When one sounds, they all sound.
Call your local fire department’s non-emergency number to find out what number to call if the CO alarm sounds.
Choose a CO alarm that has the label of a recognized testing laboratory. Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions for placement and mounting height. Test CO alarms at least once a month. If the audible trouble signal sounds, check for low batteries. If the battery is low, replace it. If it still sounds, call the fire department.
If the CO alarm sounds, immediately move to a fresh air location outdoors or by an open window or door. Make sure everyone inside the home is accounted for. Call 911 from a fresh air location and stay there until emergency personnel arrives.
