Carbon monoxide brochures offer a timely reminder about safety

title

By Lisa Braxton

Carbon monoxide (CO) incidents can occur any time of year, but they tend to be more common during the colder months. Half of CO incidents occurring have been reported to local fire departments across the United States between November and February. Officials can reinforce with residents the importance of having working CO alarms and maintaining them by distributing Carbon Monoxide Alarms brochures available through the NFPA catalog. The brochures, which come in packs of 100, help residents understand the correct installation of CO alarms, symptoms of CO poisoning, what to do if the alarm sounds, and how to reduce CO risks.
