CO Safety Tips
A carbon monoxide (CO) detector is the best way to protect your family against this deadly gas. But paying careful attention to anything in or around your home that burns fuel can prevent potential problems. Follow these CO safety tips from the National Fire Protection Association:
Don't run a car engine or other fuel burner in a garage, even if the doors are open.
Inspect your vehicle for exhaust leaks.
Check furnaces, water heaters, wood stoves, portable heaters and your chimney for leaks and cracks.
Never use a barbecue grill in a garage or other enclosed areas.
