Protecting Your Home from Carbon Monoxide: A Vital Reminder During Daylight Saving Time

Carbon Monoxide

Daylight Saving Time serves as an excellent cue to enhance the safety of your home. One essential task you should never overlook during this seasonal transition is checking your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. If you haven’t installed these life-saving devices yet, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) strongly recommends doing so to ensure the safety of your loved ones. While many homes are equipped with smoke detectors, it’s surprising to note that only about 42% of households possess carbon monoxide (CO) detectors. Carbon monoxide, often dubbed the “silent killer,” is treacherous because it is invisible and odorless. It can incapacitate and even prove fatal to those exposed to it. To adequately protect your family, CO detectors should be strategically placed on every level of your home and outside all sleeping areas.

Tips to Prevent Carbon Monoxide Exposure

Be Aware: Common Carbon Monoxide Sources

Recognize the Signs: CO Leak Indicators

Reacting to CO Alarms: Your Safety Comes First

**Evacuate Immediately**: If your CO detector’s emergency siren sounds, evacuate all occupants, including pets. Treat every alarm as genuine and exit the premises calmly.

Contact Emergency Services: Once outside, dial 911 and inform them about the CO alarm. Never re-enter the house until emergency responders have assessed the situation and deemed it safe.
