Carbon Monoxide Poisonings Prompt Federal Legislation

title

Por Kelly Ransdell

After many carbon monoxide (CO) deaths across the United States over the winter and last few months, U.S.Senators from New York, Minnesota, and Pennsylvania reintroduced legislation yesterday that would allow the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) to provide resources that support public education and installation of CO alarms. Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless gas and is known as the “invisible killer.” This poisonous gas can come from many sources, including incomplete combustion in cars, malfunctioning fuel-burning appliances, and incomplete combustion in engine-powered equipment. The only way to detect CO is with a working CO alarm. NFPA and CPSC have teamed up to create a carbon monoxide community toolkit. It has everything you need to raise awareness in your community about the dangers of CO. You can also use the Carbon Monoxide Safety tips sheet to learn more about CO safety.
