Campaign increases awareness of the dangers of Carbon Monoxide exposure

By Lisa Braxton

Carbon Monoxide Awareness Week is underway in many communities. The aim of the campaign is to raise awareness that carbon monoxide (CO) can kill. More than 400 people die each year in the United States from CO poisoning.

NFPA provides free materials that can be used to raise awareness about this invisible killer and help prevent CO poisoning. The “Keeping Your Community Safe with Carbon Monoxide Alarms” toolkit public educators can use to conduct successful community education campaigns, includes safety tip sheets, easy-to-read handouts, talking points, news releases, a video, and public service announcements. In addition, the CO safety information page on the NFPA website provides facts and figures and reports about the dangers of CO exposure.
