Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

Carbon Monoxide Poisoning happens when too much carbon monoxide is in the air and your body replaces the oxygen in your red blood cells with it. When this happens it can lead to tissue damage, fetal death or miscarriage, irreversible brain damage and even death.

Symptoms Include: Loss of consciousness, blurry vision, confusion, shortness of breath, vomiting or nausea, weakness, dull headache and/or dizziness.

Simple precautions can help prevent carbon monoxide poisoning:

1- Install carbon monoxide detectors in hallways and other areas around your house. Make sure to replace batteries twice a year when you replace your smoke alarm batteries.

2- Never let a car run in an enclosed structure, such as a garage.

3- Never heat your home or trailer with a gas stove or oven.

4 - Never use a generator in an enclosed space (basement, garage or shed)

5- Keep gas/fuel burning appliances properly vented: space heaters, furnaces, stoves, ovens, fireplaces, charcoal grills, vehicles, portable generators, etc.

6- Keep chimney's properly cleaned each year. 

7- Keep up on all repairs in your home, please contact your local fire department or utility company for more information.

8- Take caution when using cleaning products found in paint and varnish removers, used in a well-ventilated area and follow instructions on the labels.

You can purchase carbon monoxide detectors from local stores or online like this one sold by Amazon
