Carbon Monoxide - A Silent Killer

Carbon Monoxide - 300

Carbon monoxide (CO) is a colorless, odorless, tasteless, poisonous gas. Human senses cannot detect its presence.

CO is produced by anything that burns fuel inefficiently. Sources can include, but are not limited to gas dryers, furnaces, stoves, burners, water heaters, fireplaces, automobile fumes, and portable heaters.

It is important to have a CO alarm for early warning and detection.

In Minnesota, CO alarms must be installed within 10 feet of every bedroom. If people sleep on multiple levels, there must be a CO alarm on every level. Check CO alarms regularly to be sure they are functioning properly. CO alarms last between 5 and 10 years per the manufacturer’s date, which is located on the back of the device.

If you are interested in participating in a CO data study to receive free CO alarms or you want to schedule a confidential home safety survey, call 763-767-4003.

For a short survey regarding home safety, visit BlaineMN.gov/HomeSafetySurvey.
