Carbon Monoxide Safety: Receive a Free CO Alarm

CO nf

Carbon monoxide is an odorless, colorless gas that can kill you. It is the leading cause of accidental poisoning in the United States. Your senses cannot detect its presence. CO is produced by anything in your home 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, you must install CO alarms within 10 feet of the bedrooms. 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 and receive a free CO alarm or you want to schedule a confidential home safety survey, call 763-767-4003.
