Carbon Monoxide Alarms

Smoke alarms should not be confused with carbon monoxide alarms. Carbon monoxide alarms are useful in detecting dangerous levels of CO in any type of fuel-burning equipment (such as gas-fueled space heaters, furnaces, fireplaces, or wood-burning stoves) or from CO that leaks into a home from a garage.

If you have a fireplace, a wood stove, a gas stove or furnace or any other form of combustion in your home, You NEED a carbon monoxide detector on every level of your home. Carbon Monoxide can Kill!! Be Safe!! If you think that you have carbon monoxide in your home, get out immediately and call your fire department from a cell phone or you neighbor's house.
