Prevent Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
During this winter season, it is especially important that those who are using combustion sources to provide for their warmth are aware of the dangers of Carbon Monoxide poisoning.
“Everyone is at risk of being poisoned by carbon monoxide exposure. Older adults with pre-existing conditions, such as chronic heart disease, anemia, or respiratory problems, are even more susceptible to the effects of this odorless, colorless gas.” (from EPA’s Fact Sheet entitled Preventing Carbon Monoxide Poisoning).
