Crime Prevention Week

Carbon Monoxide Awareness

November 1-7 also marked Carbon Monoxide Awareness Week in Ontario. It’s an annual reminder by the Office of the Ontario Fire Marshal to test carbon monoxide detectors as well as ensure all fuel burning appliances, chimneys and outside vents are inspected to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning. 

Here is how you can help protect yourself from the dangers of carbon monoxide:

  • Look for signs of exposure which could include flu-like symptoms – headaches, nausea, dizziness, confusion, drowsiness, loss of consciousness and in extreme cases, death.
  • If your carbon monoxide alarm sounds, get everyone out of the home and into fresh air, and call 9-1-1.
  • Read the manufacturer’s instructions for your carbon monoxide alarms to know the difference between the sound of an alarm and the sound of a low battery or end of life warning. Test your alarms monthly and make sure everyone in your home knows the difference between the sound of each alarm.

There are more safety tips and information on this Ontario government website.
